Hey Silver. For what its worth. I think you need the tool for the year and vehicle the tranny came out of. I got the tool for the '97 XJ tranny, NOT the tool for my '88 YJ. I first used the tool for the '88 YJ and that ended up being my problem...wrong tool. I think you need the tool for your tranny not your '89 YJ.

You need the 10 spline, 1-1/4" tool, that has a 0.750" pilot tip.

Your '89 would have used the same type of tool, except with a 0.590" tip.

$20.00, never have to worry if you have the right size again.

I have the Snap-On version of that, and I don't use it.

For me, the plastic splined tool that comes in a LuK kit just have a better, more positive feel.

I agree, but when you don't have one this is the next best.

Take a breather. Relax.

Go to the hardware store & buy 2 of the longest 7/16" bolts they have. Cut the heads off of both, and then cut slots in the ends where you cut the heads off. Install them into the 3 & 9 o'clock bellhousing bolt holes. This will allow you to put them through the bellhousing & it'll hold up the front of the transmission, leaving you to only tilt the rear of the transmission up & down to achieve alignment.

Have the transmission in 4th gear, so you can twist the output shaft to align the clutch splines.
