Clutch master and slave question

My slave cylinder is going out. I found this out in traffic when my foot was on the floor and my jeep was inching forward toward the miata in front of me like a dog on a leash going after a cat across the street. Anywho I went to stores in three cities and found a master cylinder and slave finally and wondering if I need the hose connecting the two or can I reuse the old one? Cause I can't find one anywhere. My diaphragm on the slave is leaking and have no fluid loss whatsoever.

Advice? I'm switching it out tomorrow morning.

The slave is located in the bell housing so make sure thats the leak. If so GO TO NAPA do not buy anything BUT NAPA or you will be pulling tranny again and again. Also may want to do clutch psi plate and surface flywheel at machine shop....those parts are fine at kragen/oriley. BUT DO NOT BUY A KRAGEN AUTO ZONE JUNK SLAVE CYLINDER. IT WILL FAIL
Now if its the master on fire wall you'll know its leaking because you'll have brake fluid all over the carpet inside. Easy fix and if the kragen one goes out its not a big deal. (I just replaced my kragen twice, second time was a charm)
anyway master clutch cylinder is bolt up and pined to clutch

Well he's got a 94' so his slave is on the outside of the bellhousing. OP what type of hydraulic line do you have on there now? As long as its not the pre-bled set up you should be able to reuse the line. That is if its not the line thats leaking.

Nothing is leaking externally. I have maintained the same amount of fluid in the reservoir for the past week. The slave cylinder feels like it's just not catching and then it'll catch when I try again. Sometimes it'll lunge ahead with the clutch pedal half an inch off the floor and sometimes it's in the normal place halfway from the floor to the dash.
