Brake pedal will not return to top

I have a Cars Inc. front disc conversion with booster on my 57 Bel Air. Rear drums. Brake pedal returns fine when cars is cold, but when the engine gets up to temp. it will not return to top. Fluids are good, lines don't looked kinked, seems to have good vacuum assist off carb. Suggestions?

Disconnect the vacuum when it's in its stuck position. If it returns to normal, it's the booster. If not, it's hard to tell but the master cylinder would be a good second suspect. Even if the lines were welded shut the pedal would return to the top.
