Mystery Solv-ed!

Damn, I went thru a bunch o little stuff.  Dried everything out w/ WD40.  Cleaned plug wires, used carb cleaner on the carbs to dry them out.

And then, I replaced the plugs - didn't do it.  Replaced the plug wires - didn't do it.  Finally, replaced the rotor cap - Guess what?  NOW I can see the hairline crack on the inside between two electrodes.  Probably between 3&4. 

Now, if I can just figure out why my brakes is acting funky. . .  They seem to be sticking so that they only work on one side - and maybe only on the front (on one side) once in a while. 

Ummmm, it's been a little hairy a couple of times.  Like that time I was doing 100mph on the freeway and the car pulled over in front of me. . .  Oh yes, and the time I was racing around the mountain roads with Dana who also has a JH and it felt like only the right front brake was working - and working well.  Fortunately, I coming into a tight left hand curve - hot. . . . that made me glad I could slide around a curve at 50mph. . . .

Any ideas on the brakes?
