Convert from single MS to a Dual MS

Just purchased a 1955 Ford with single MS. The car has 11" drums all the way around and I want to keep it that way. I know I need a dual MS with 1" deep bore for manual brakes. Do I need a combination valve? I don't think so as they are used on disc/drum setups. The MS is above the wheel cylinders so I don't need residual valves. The front brakes and rear brakes are already split after they leave the single Ms.

I think all I need to do is purchase a MS. All input would be appreciated. It already has all new lines, wheel cylinders, shoes etc.

Thanks for your help..............See ya on the boulevard!!!!

when i converted my fairlane's single mc to dual i just bought the dual cylinder for a later year mustang since the mounting holes were the same. Really the only thing i had to do other than bolt it on was take off the t that connects all the lines for the front and back brakes from the single mc, and run one line from one port on the dual mc to the rear brake line, and run another line from the other port on the mc to a t for the two front brake lines, real easy, and it works great! should be similar to what you'd have to do to yours, good luck
