brake pedal wont' return

1977 ford 250 ranger. I have bled the lines after replacing the most recent one. But, the problem that occurred this past winter wont' correct itself. The brakes are good but, the pedal won't return. Please help.

Thanks in advance,

Not familiar with your vehicle, but there is usually a spring somewhere on the pedal, either on the pedal shaft or connecting to the pedal. It is broken or has come loose. They normally last forever, but apparently not in your case. I have worked on lots of 50's Chevys where the spring was fine and working.
