I have Hucks in front and Bendix on the rear with a non-power dual M/C from a 
Nova.  I used no proportioning valve and the brakes work great.  Plenty of 
stopping power.

I used a shaft longer than I needed (none were correct length) and had it cut 
down, welded and balanced for $60.  No problems.
