Brake binding problem.

I have a 1984 SL500 with an AMG package an I have a brake problem. The car is only driven about 250 miles a year now. My front right brake which was done a year and 250 miles ago started smoking. I figured the caliper was binding, the wheel would not spin with the car on jacks. I replaced the caliper and the wheel will still not spin. If I open the bleeder screw it turns, but once closed and brake depressed it binds, any ideas?

Thanks.

Well if you replaced the caliper it sounds like after you depress the pedal brake
presure is getting trapped . If you have access to a brake presure gauge you could
see if its a collapsed hose or a blocked hard line or poss. a master but thats unlikely

Thank you, that was the next thing I check. Someone also mentioned something about a solenoid?
