I'm assuming this is not the truck in your signature (since they did not have DMFWs)? I had a lot of experience with my 94 cracking slaves in the same spot (three of them I recall). The early masters/slaves had a smaller bore and they eventually changed to a larger bore system. Once I changed to that I did not have further problems. The two cylinders must match sizes. If you have to, you might try replacing the master/slave/line with a pre-bled system (the early and late masters have different orientations of the line coming out of them, so the masters and lines are different between the 2 systems). Cheers!

If you know you still have the old-style, I would change all of it (that was the only thing that worked on my 94). Cheers!
