All my brakes are new and work good but won't release all scrape.

(1990 Dodge Ram 50)
in Austinville, VA on February 17, 2017
When I release the brake peddle all of my brakes are lightly rubbing the rotors still. Is it the master cylinder Hydraulic part letting fluid by and not letting brakes release all the way ?

Do you feel a constant drag from the brakes? Does the vehicle slow to a stop by itself, or is it capable of idling forward when the brake is released?
The brake pads and rotors should be touching at all times, but if they are squeezing at all times, that is a different scenario that would likely indicate failed brake calipers.
