Folks - I've been struggling with diagnosing the reason why my 2240 brakes drag intermittently. The brakes seem to apply correctly, but when the pedals are released, the brake pressure sometimes does not seem to release. Both brakes do this at the same time, leading me to believe that the problem is in the master cylinder, not the actual brakes.

Any thoughts on how to fix?

It's possible the brake pedal pivot pins need some penetrating oil applied on them

Thanks Jim. I checked the pedals and pivot points. They all look good. I keep thinking this has got to do something with the way that the pressure is released when the pedals are released. It just makes no sense that the problem would be in the independent brakes themselves, as it seems to always happen to both at the same time.

My next thought would be to inspect brake valve plungers.
