brake system help

The vehicle is 1988 chevy K1500 4WH drive pickup light duty front disc brake, rear drum setup, stock calipers, master cylinder and proportioning valve.Here is the problem the wiring harness is cobbed to eliminate RWAL also the dump valve was bypassed and removed. In short the pedal has been soft all air is out rear shoes are adjusted up. Any suggestions on a different MC using just an adjustable proportioning valve on the rear drums only ? I believe the front calipers need a quick take up MC
