Default 99 civic Rear brake locking up after replacing everything

Having a problem with my rear passsengers side drum brake. It locks up and
then after an hour it is fine again till the next time it decides to happen.
I have replaced the shoes and had them cleaned up as well as the flex line
and the problem still persists. Anyone have any idea what this could be? I
am at my wits end as they say.

Need more info. ABS? 'I have replaced the shoes and had them cleaned up as
well as the flex line
and the problem still persists.' - what does that mean? Stop and go or
freeway? What happens during the hour after lock up till it frees up?

not abs you have to leave the car parked for about an hour and it goes
away. While its locked the car will move but is sluggish and you can smelll
burt brakes a mile away.

The rear brake hose could be check-valving, plugging or collapsing after use
and not letting pressure off, but they don't usually come and go like your
description. Could be the parking brake not releasing completely and
leaving the brake applied a little, which over time locks up, but again the
symptoms don't quite match the usual problem. Are the rear brakes adjusted
properly and equally? Can you pull the drums off and adjust the shoes in on
both sides then drive and see if the problem reoccurs?

I agree with the parking brake diagnosis. I had the same
problem on my 98 civic, i haven't fixed it yet, but i disconnected the
parking brake on the side that was locking up (you can do that
right at the brake lever, just pop out the cable), and since
then no more locky-locky.

I am waiting til it gets nicer out to check to see what the
real problem is... I suspect it has to do with a rusty spring that makes
the P-Brake cable release all the way.
