Default Clutch install went wrong

So my clutch finally went thanks to the install job the last people did on my truck b4 I bought it . To make an Long story short the last person who did the clutch didn't replace the slave and it leaked fluid on the clutch. So the previous owner complained and got a new slave put in. 6k mi after I bought the truck the clutch was slipping so bad I couldnt make it out of the drive way.

So I took everything apart got a new clutch from ford. Then bought a new slave from napa then had to but a new line because the previous mechanic that worked on the truck destroyed the line that goes into the slave. So I couldn't get I back into the new slave. so I decided to get a new clutch master so everything would be new. I bench bled the new master with line on it .

Put it all back together stepped on the clutch pedal to bleed the slave cylinder and after the first pump the slave cylinder started leaking fluid immediately.

Now I took it back apart and all I have to do is pull the tranny out to see what's goin on.

Has anyone ever had a problem with a brand new slave like that?

that fitting is bery tricky, mine seemed to want to "double click" with the nylon sleve. Check that first before you tear into it

Too late it's basically all apart. I think It definatley clicked it but it was leaking from the spring area it didint look like it was coming from where the line was inserted and it didn't look like it was coming from where the bleader screws in.
