parking brake cable

Have any of you ever had one of these sieze? Ive got one on a spare LT230 and it wont budge. I can get a little movement on the inside of the drum but thats it. The shoes and springs on the inside look to be okay. any thoughts?

Yes they sieze, mine would engage and then stick and I could only get it off by rocking the truck back and forth while pushing the e-brake handle down.

I replaced it with a D2 e-brake assembly, much much better. See the leprechan thread for the pics of how to manage the differnt cable ends.
