Dual Master Cyl on Willys Pickup

Just picked up ANOTHER project, a 1952 Willys Pickup that the PO has kinda hacked. Among the first thing I'd like to correct is the master cyl. The PO installed a dual cyl off of..who knows what, no proportioning valve, and apparently for a disc/drum setup(2 different size lines). The truck has the original drums all around. This m/c is in the original location, with pivot pedals ,under the floor. My question: If I replace this M/C with a basic dual m/c for a drum/drum setup, with a proportioning valve, do I also need to install a residual pressure check valve if the m/c is under the floor??? Thanks for any input.

Unless you plan to keep the brakes adjusted correctly at all times, as in daily...
Get the pressure residual valves for both ends. The real trick is going to be getting
the front and rear to co-operate, so you will probably need a proportioning valve
for the rears...

Thanks, so, the setup should be: a dual master cyl for drum/drum, proportioning valve for drum/ drum, and then a resuidual valve in both front and rear circuits? Also, where can I get the residual valves? Thanks again.

I've heard that a dual master from late 60's CJ5 master is a direct swap. This guy also offers one, look under specialty parts.
