Hi Johnnie, that Walton mount is a good piece of kit. I particularly like the dash brace as that's quite a bit of weight swinging of an access plate hole with the master and booster weight combined. When you add in the panic stop hit, it really matters.

You can get 3/16" brake nuts with either metric or imperial threads, sometimes they even have an imperial thread and a metric spanner size. Quite often find our imperial bleeders have 10mm spanner size.

I would use an adjustable type proportioning valve, not a kit one. If the dual master has an internal RLP then that will be the furthest from the pedal. Use that for the rear drums.
You won't need one on the front discs as gravity will do that job for you.

Plus having a 10 Psi RLP on the back and none on the disc end will bring their application time closer.

Cheers Kiwi
