I think the potential problem here is that the old system probably has 6mm ID 
brake hose, while the tandem cylinder will expect 8mm ID hose. If you could 
find a Tee that would accept the 6mm hose in from your old reservoir and 8mm 
out to the 2 tandem input nipples, then this should be straightforward. I think 
I've seen such items available in plastic (perfect for brake fluid) and I might 
even have one here.

The lack of a split MC reservoir is only a minor problem, as a normal system 
usually doesn't need much fluid from the line. Just put your split close to the 
reservoir end rather than close to the MC.
