    Right side brake has been grabbing/locking up since day one. Thought it would "wear-in" but never did. The right side ecs brake control sort of undulates in and out when slight pressure is applies as if the drum itself were out of round. Ever heard of this? Ordered new drum and band for right side. Hope it fixes the problem.

    I would look most closely at the drum. We can have band issues from time to time however if the right side is undulating it could be an indication that something is out of round. Also look at the hub to ensure that the mouting holes for the drum/pulley's etc are not off center. I've never seen this but it's possible.
