How to ID master cyl disc frt/drum rear

I'm working on a 46 International with a grab bag of parts for a disc front, drum rear conversion. I managed to fit the rotors, calipers and brackets with no problems on front, the rear is a 9" with drum brakes that were rebuilt by the previous owner. The problem is, the current owner bought a booster and master cylinder from other sources. The master cylinder has a small reservoir in front(if I remember right) and the ports are different sizes. The owner says it is a disc/drum MC. If so, should it more than likely have a 10psi holdback valve or whatever it's proper name is integral? How do I check it? Just a pressure gauge on the line?
Thanks,
Chip.

Residual pressure valve:
Small reservoir is for rear Drums, M/C should have Residual valve built in for the Drum portion. I'm not sure how many lbs. they are tho'. You could rig up a line & gauge to check.
Is the M/C going on the firewall or under floor?

It's going on the firewall. I rigged up a gauge and figured out it does have the valve integral. Thanks for the reply, suggestion and links.
