Lots of things going on here.
First you changed front drums to disc on the chysler?
Did you change the master to a later style master with the larger resevoir for the disc?
The original master will run the brakes , and if it is for a drum drum system then it is probably a smaller bore which will give a higher ratio of application force per lbs of force applied to pedal verses a master with a larger bore, which is typical for a disc- drum setup with power assist.
You should go to Dean Oshiros website and do some reading.

Do a little reading here,it will answer a lot of your questions.

BTW I knew a guy named Cyrus Rouse from saskatoon, do you know him? (old guy)
