The diameter of the piston inside the dual master cylinder may be much smaller than the single line you took off.
# 2 the actuating rod may not be adjusted properyly allowing too much free play before it engages the piston.
Do you know what this M/C is for,if it was for power assist that could be another thing to check for ,it should have been for manual brakes if thats what you started with.
