I rebuilt the cylinders right after I got the car in June of this year.  The passenger side was leaking badly and had fluid all over the shoes.  I've cleaned them with brake cleaner and they seemed as good as new, but could that be the problem?  Also, the driver's side cylinder was sticking in front: too much grime from the slight leak around the bearing.  So the two pads on that side are not evenly worn.  I've gotten all the hydraulics to work, after the application of some elbow grease, so that's not a problem.  Could the damage/ imbalance to the shoes create the e-brake problem I'm having?
