Default 29 Model AA interesting problem

Hey all,
Looking for a little help, went to take my 29 AA out the other day and pulled out of the shed and the drivers rear wheel locked up, goes into gear just fine just passenger wheel spins, now if I go in reverse both wheels spin just fine, any ideas seems funny to me, never had any issues with it the last time I drove it. Would think if it would lock up one way it would the other way.

I have seen something like this once, I think it was the leading edge of the brake shoe grabbing.. Thats the first place I would look..

Kindest regards from NZ

Pull the left rear drum off and see whats up. Maybe a spring broke and the brake is jammed somehow.

The rear brakes never worked right even after adjusting them, they didn't come on or release properly,
. When I took the rear axle completely apart, I noticed the cams on both sides were froze solid, after sandblasted, painted, and greased, I have brakes.
carry on, nick c
