Still think you also have an issue near the pedals or master cylinder, perhaps in addition to the other things; mine did the exact same thing when I got it. Pulling up on the pedal should have no effect if everything is right. When the piston in the MC starts to move forward, it covers the two intake ports, creating hydraulic pressure for the brakes. When you release the brakes and the piston returns to 'home', the ports are uncovered and all pressure is gone. If you have already installed bronze bushings or are otherwise certain that the pedal is not hanging up at all, I believe there is also an adjustment on the pushrod that goes between the pedal and the MC; you can shorten that up until the brakes release same as if you had pulled up on the pedal before the adjustment.
