did you keep your 91 bell housing or use the 94? I want to use my 94 bell housing with the 91 tranny so I keep the external slave.

I used the 94 bellhousing, so I could swap to the external slave. Worked like a charm.

You have to swap out the bearing retainer also.... the throwout bearing rides on it.... when you pull your old trans off look inside the bellhousing and you will see the difference....

Not the sharpest bulb in the box....

Can I use the parts from 94? I found a low mileage 91 in good running order, all 5 gears and no grinding. I am not a mechanic is it a DIY project?

Yes, just pull the bearing retainer off of the '94 and put it on the '91 tranny when you swap out the bellhousing

Also replace the tension spring they are cheap but most are brittle and broke you will see it it will fall out when you swap the bearing plates.

My boss made the comment that "I bet you missed me over the holiday break",my response was "yes your right I did, but my aim is getting better"
