I now have 4wheel disc brakes on the 63 cruiser. It has the
factory booster. Anything special I should know for operation
when converting to a dual master cylinder on the booster?

Got a proportioning valve on the rears? Residual check valves on both lines? I did tnis recently, and it was pretty straight forward, but I read a lot of the old posts for research.

Not really .. use an Avanti II master from an early 70s Chrysler. Its
about 70 bucks.

4 wheel disk brakes will require a MC, with larger than a 1.0" bore. Use this as a reference to calculate how much fluid you need to push before buying a MC
