Default Brake master cylinder conversion

I want to drive the 66 Suburban so I have added a 1979 C10 front suspension to gain the disc brakes and power steering. What are you all using for a dual master cylinder that will work with the stock power brake booster and work with the front disc brakes with original drum brakes? Any help would be appreciated.

Probably be easier for you to not use the stock power booster brake set-up and go with a unit that is close to the newer disc/drum set-up - what about the brake booster set-up from your parts truck that will are least get you in the ball park for the disc brakes. You will need a proportional valve also designed for disc/drum balance. You're dealing with a lot of mismatched units that will need a little engineering balance.

Thanks for your idea! I probably will have to use the donor truck engineering as it worked on that truck well. I kept those parts too. Twin system braking just makes good sense on a driver suburban
