Make sure the guide pins on the calipers are not binding or worn

If both brakes are sticking, it is probably a sticky master cylinder. If the plane pulls one way or the other when the brake sticks, it is probably a caliper problem. My master cylinder was not releasing the pressure without pulling the pedal up. A dismantling, cleaning, and new o-rings, seemed to fix the problem.

0n my 415C with cleveland brakes, I have experienced a brake sticking / dragging and then subsequent release after operating the brake pedal again.
Should I start with looking at the wheel hydraulics or the brake pedal & master cylinder under the floor?
Thanks for your advice,
Dennis Tar
