```I'm not sure if I understood your problem right. In your example the ninth
position in each list is also the last one, and I'm taking advantage of that
fact. Otherwise, a small adjustment would be needed. Perhaps, then, this
will help:

In[1]:=
masterlist = {{{"AEST-01-C-10", 1, 1, 1, 2, 31, 1, C,
-2.14}, {"AEST-01-C-10", 1, 1, 1, 4, 31, 1, C,
-1.1}, {"AEST-01-C-10", 2, 2, 1, 2, 12, 2, C,
1.79}}, {{"AEST-01-C-10", 2, 1, 2, 1, 10, 2, C,
1.334}, {"AEST-01-C-10", 2, 1, 3, 2, 1, 4, C,
1.997}, {"AEST-01-C-10", 3, 2, 1, 1, 2, 1, C,
-1.17}, {"AEST-01-C-10", 3, 4, 1, 1, 21, 2, C,
2.15}}};

In[2]:=
Join[Select[masterlist, Length[#] != 3 & ],
Cases[(Last /@ # & ) /@ Select[masterlist,
Length[#] == 3 & ], x_ /; MemberQ[x, 0]]]

Out[2]=
{{{"AEST-01-C-10", 2, 1, 2, 1, 10, 2, C, 1.334},
{"AEST-01-C-10", 2, 1, 3, 2, 1, 4, C, 1.997},
{"AEST-01-C-10", 3, 2, 1, 1, 2, 1, C, -1.17},
{"AEST-01-C-10", 3, 4, 1, 1, 21, 2, C, 2.15}}}
