88 XJ Slave Cylinder, Internal or External? (With Pictures)

Hey everyone! Getting ready for a bit of a driveway project ahead of me I fear!

Preparation:


-I built a ramp for the jeep out of some spare lumber lying around for the process ahead of me.

-Try not to mind the ghetto fabulous build job of the ramp stands, to avoid purchasing anything or going anywhere I just used what I had lying around, and its got more screws in it than my deck so its safe which is what matters lol.







Symptoms:


-Clutch pedal has ZERO resistance to the floor, but springs back no problem

-Transmission will not disengage from gear

-Master cylinder reservoir goes empty, not sure how quick, but the fact that the fluid is going somewhere means something is wrong

-Leaky around the seam at the bell housing, quite wet with dot3, more than other fluids








My Question:


-Is this an internal or external slave? I've been getting mixed reports from people I ask, hence why i'm posting this in the hands of fellow jeep owners

-View is from underneath, driver side

This appears to be a internal slave. I believe the external was not used until 94. Unfortunately that means dropping the transmission is required. I'd recommend replacing the rear main seal and clutch while your in there.

Thats what I've been told from Cherokeeforum, I'm in the process of calling some local junkyards to see if I can get lucky with finding an ax15 transmission so i can turf this infamous BA10/5

I don't know about your area but xjs are abundant in my local junk yard if you can find one with an external slave setup you'll be in best shape. That and a case of your favorite suds...stay safe out there.
