Brake pedal won't fully return!
#1
Hey everyone, I'm new to the forum as I just bought my 72' Mustang yesterday. It's in immaculate shape overall, it needs a new vinyl roof but the paint is still good, interior is probably a 6-7/10 which isn't bad for a 45 year old car, AM radio still works! Anyway, the brakes work fine, but the pedal doesn't fully return unless I lift it with my left foot. I drove the car home, which was about 40 miles. Previous to me driving it, it hadn't been on the road in 4 years. Any suggestions on what the issue could be? Thanks, Daniel.

Assuming the car has power brakes, my guess would be the atmospheric pressure relief valve inside the brake booster. Let us know what you find. Chuck
