Rotor failure as you described is exactly what happened to me. There 
is a bad batch of rotors out there. Your experience brings the total 
that I directly know of to 10. I went through 4 this year alone. Two 
were Intersport and two were marked Lucas, but I've been told that 
they all come from the same manufacturer. I have been told by two 
suppliers that they've seen more rotor failures this summer than in 
their entire LBC lives.  My first fix, as was yours, was to install 
an old rotor, in my case, a 1963 unit with lots of miles on it.

I am told that NAPA sells a good replacement. Also, Peter C. at NOS 
Imports  ( sells a good replacement. I have 
tested his, at it works great. I keep the '63 as a spare.
