Brake problem: 1985 500SEL

I do not know if it is the caliper or it needs a bleed:

When I brake, it pulls to the right. If you brake hard enough to engage the antilock system (by the way, where is the unclelock system?) the the wheel locks for a split second and then the pulling stops.

After the car has sat for a while, as little as an hour, it starts pulling again.

A search made me think that the caliper is getting "hung up". ANy suggestions would be helpful.

THANKS!
