Remote Brake Booster

I am currently working on restoring a Divco (milk truck).

From the factory it came with a single pot master cylinder and a hydrovac booster. I have no desire whatsoever to run a single pot master so I'd like to swap it over to a dual circuit. The problem is that where the master cylinder bolts up is really tight for space. There is just enough room for the master cylinder itself and definitely no room for a booster bolted directly onto the cylinder.

The truck doesn't, and won't, have power steering so a hydroboost is out. I thought about running it unboosted but the truck weighs 5,000lbs so that doesn't sound like a great idea.

Does anyone know of a remote mounted dual circuit vacuum brake booster I could use?
