1969 Spider tandem brake system

Hopefully someone can help solve my brake problem. I recently installed the brake master cylinder which I had rebuilt. When I apply the brakes, the front brakes lock up and do not release. I appears to me that the master brake cylinder piston for the front brakes (rear chamber) is not moving enough to to allow the pressure to be released. Has anyone had this problem? Am I missing something obvious? I really don't want to remove the MC and send it away again unless necessary. Thanks
