It may be worth back bleeding the system, pumping fluid through the bleed screw up to the reservoir.
I have an oil can that I use for doing this with a flexi rubber pipe on the end.

Another way to do this, is to undo the slave cylinder from the bellhousing, fill the master half way, and SLOWLY push the slave rod in and out to force air back up through the master. I usually have someone watch the fluid level, as it doesn't take much to send fluid blasting out the top  ;D

This method is how I get around Chrysler telling me it's a sealed unit and "unserviceable"  ::)

Another thing, if back bleeding doesn't do it, try comparing the length of the pushrods of the new and old. I've had, on more than one occasion, been given the correct slave, but not rod.

Thanks for the replies guys. I actually did bleed it through the master from the slave. However I must admit that we were very tired & lazy when we changed the master.. we didn't change the rod! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this may be the issue. Thanks for helping me realize my stupidity ;D
