As I understand it, you want to operate two cylinders on your front mount rockshaft. correct? So, there are two options. One is about $900.00 cheaper than the other. First option (cheapest) is to plumb the two cylinders together so that your one remote operates both cylinders. This will operate them together (not perfectly correct, but functional).

The second option involves removing the existing hydraulic remote box assembly and lever and replacing it with a dual remote housing box and a second lever assembly that will incorporate the original lever to operate both functions. Dual hydraulic boxes are out there, but as I said be prepared to spend a lot (IMHO) of money. Unless you're going to cultivate point rows, I doubt you'll really miss the independent action of the front rockshaft. But if you're dying for originality then go for the dual box. Just be aware that resale value of your single valve box is nil. Everyone has one of those (your case in point), so you will not (I don't think) sell the single box to cover some of the cost of the new dual box. I, myself have one in a 5 gal pail and another one soon to be placed in one.

Good luck in whichever path you choose.
