Repetivite jerking feeling when using front brake

I just installed a new front wheel (Araya aero 1) and also took off and reinstalled my front brake at the time (Shimano BR-1050 105 side pull single pivot). I set up and centered the front brake like I usually do and everything looked good. Now when I brake I get a bad "jerk" feeling once every revolution. Holding the front brake while stationary and trying to move the wheel forward I can see the brake arms move forward a bit, there is some play. The wheel is fairly true, there is a little wobble to it but not even close to the old wheel which was seriously bent and out of true yet the same front brake worked perfectly on it.

What should I be looking for here? I tightened the recessed mounting nut and it didn't help also checked the rim surface which seems just fine.
