Have you cracked open one of the bleeders, when the brakes start to drag?
Just to see if it is in-fact something up line causing your problem?
How do you know it's not the residual valve?
I'd even crack open the fitting at the M/C to narrow things down.
Like, if you did and found too much or pressure at X then you'd be sure.
Know what I'm saying...
The residual valve was my first thought even picked up a new one. I was sure it was the pushrod because the brakes released when I loosened the MC mounting nuts. I'll try cracking a fitting on the MC since both wheels are dragging.

I've had brake problems ever since cheap import parts took over, had 2 brand new Oreillys wheel cylinders fail on one car and a pressure switch fail on this one both resulting in brake failure. When I installed the Blazer rear end on this ride I rebuilt both calipers and both dragged because the O-rings where too large making the pistons stick.
