For whatever reason, clutch masters and slaves often fail close to eachother. Replace just one, and the other fails shortly thereafter. Best to replace both, and if you do the external slave mod, there is a one piece, pre-bled clutch master/slave unit that is the best thing to go with.
I have been luckily spared the issue that many Jeepers have regarding different size bushings, or different size bearings for the pilot, and I honestly do not know the various combinations of these various options. It may come down to taking careful measurements, and going thru a pile of pilot bearings at the local parts store with a helpful parts man. I am assuming you intend to take the larger snout input shaft from your donor transmission, and replace the smaller snouted input on the one you are rebuilding. Before doing this, I'd look closely into the pilot bearing/bushing issue to make sure it doesn't end up being a mission stopper when you go to reassemble. I have read stories of woe on the forum from those who had to take their bushing to a machine shop to have it sized. I have also read that Novak conversions (has online store, 1-800 #, etc) has some of the obscure pilots. To do the external slave mod, you don't need to change the input shaft itself, but you do need to change the input bearing retainer. It has a long snout on it that the throwout bearing glides back and forth upon vs the flat-faced input bearing retainer that matches that hideous internal slave.
