LOL, I just did mine this past weekend!! Same exact symptoms.

Well, I also rebuilt the rear master cylinder while I had it all apart.

Now it performs like new!!

A quick test is to pull up on the foot pedal. IF the light goes out, then you need to also clean and lube the foot pedal pivot shaft.

I also found that the brake light switch, behind the hand brake lever, needed a good clean, too! It was "gummy" inside the actual switch.

But, be very careful taking that thing apart!!! It can easily break, or you will launch the spring that is in there, across the garage.... I mean, I don't know what I am talking about...

Anyway, a few days later, I found the spring, and now that switch is working perfectly again after a good clean and lube!

Mostly all you have to do is disassemble the pivot (remove cotter pin), remove the lever (making note of current position), push the shaft inboard and grease it, reassemble... should be no reason to fiddle with the spring or the master cylinder unless you got other problems.

Can't take credit for that. I was just commenting on rbentnail's post. Plenty of good info there.
