ax-15 swap question

I'm buying a rebuilt ax-15 (94-95, external slave) to swap in my 92 Yj. I don't have the time or means to rebuild mine myself, although I'd love the challenge. I'll be doing the swap myself, so my question is:

What else should I consider for this process? I know I need the external slave itself... but seals, or anything else while i'm all tore up??

Thanks in advance...

I just did it the swap.

I purchased the Master/slave filled and pre-bleed unit. We were slowed down by that alot. The new master would not fit into the present master cylinder position on the firewall. We modified the new master cyclinder to mount on the present firewall studs.

The new master would not work with my clutch pedal either. The pin on the clutch pedal that attaches to the master cylinder ram was too big, so we drilled the master cylinder ram hole out also.

some careful and precision drilling required.

Of course we replaced the clutch disc, pilot bearing and clutch spring housing too.

Are you getting the ax15 with the proper bell housing setup?

Did you have the ax15 already? I believe my model year, 92, should be a pretty direct swap. Only difference I can find from reading threads is slave (interval vs. external) everything else should be pretty direct bolt application. I hope at least...

I just did the swap myself...I'm assuming you have a Peugeot BA-10? I got all the conversion stuff from Advance Adapters (AA) and it was an easy process; but not cheap. I think the kit I got cost about $500 from them and includes everything you might need for the swap (less clutch stuff).

AA has the slave and line that works with your exiting clutch master cylinder...or you can modify what you have as already suggested. The trannys are the same length, but the mounting bolts are about an 1.5" further back...again you can get an adapter plate from AA or modify your skid plate (I got the adapter plate). I also got the AA transfer case adapter, but I have read the original can be modified to fit too.

A lot depends on how much you want to spend and how much time and energy you want to invest modifying stuff.

If he's got a '92 and the 4.0, he's already got an AX-15. I'm pretty sure the only real "modification" happening here is the external slave, he just happens to be swapping the entire thing including trans. (If I'm understanding it correctly)
