I rebuilt the master cylinder, and... success! No more dragging.

Feels really good.

The master cylinder has two port, fill and relief.
The relief is very small in diameter and can become plugged or partially plugged.

Google images.

Good. Funny how sometimes seemingly unrelated work affects the other parts. May not be your case but anytime I find corrosion or such binding or creating seeps in one part of the system, I'll go look at the other parts.

Could be just me being anal about brakes, but complete dissassembly of MCs and calipers for cleaning/inspections every few years sure has saved me much $$$ over the years. Rebuild kits are much cheaper than new MCs/calipers.
Have tools, will travel!
