1986 dodge truck brake pedal sticks, please help

we have a 1986 dodge truck and the brake pedal sticks down and you have to manualy pull it back to release the brake. What could my problem be.

The pedal linkage is binding at one of it’s pivot-points or the master cylinder or power-booster have malfunctioned and need replacement…The components will have to be separated and the faluty part(s) replaced…The master cylinder is the most likely suspect…

On a 26 year old truck, you can expect the entire brake system needs restoration…New Everything…

Thank you for your comment you have helped us get to a starting point.
