Still very confused

I have just been sorting out A 156 that has been standing for over 12 months. All is well except the brakes. While I was being towed, engine not running, and probably the ignition was off, the brakes seemed to work fine. However they are not working properly now. It feels like the ABS is active, as against just being on when more than just a little pressure is applied to the pedal. The pedal also does the classic thing and pulses when braking and to be honest they hardly stop the car. I have tried cleaning the sensors and rings but they are well hidden..
The rear brakes were pretty tight and I had to strip them down to get them to function properly and are still a little tight I think (although the car will roll freely on a slope).
