Because you have used 2 different wheel cylinders, and the odds they are both bad at the line connection seems odd, I would look closely at the double flare on the brake line to see if there is any damage or imperfections. If so, make a new line to the T on the differential.

I agree. Look at the connection in the wheel cylinder to see if the mating surface for the flare looks good too. I replaced a brake line on my truck back in October. I bent the line, cut it to length, formed a new flare on the end the connected to the front rubber hose. Worked perfectly. Then about a month ago it started leaking. I took it apart, cleaned everything and checked the flare. Everything looked great but I could not get it to stop leaking. I cut the line a bit shorter and reflared it and it stopped leaking. So even if the flare looks good it might not seal for some reason. Even cleaned up with no fluid coming out of it the flare still looked perfect. No cracks in the line either.

is it even a double flare? some butcher or lack of knowledge person mayhave replaced it prior to this.
