External Slave Replacement write-up?

So the clutch pedal hangs down a bit from the brake pedal and doesn't lift itself all the way up. Also until I pump up the clutch a bit the pedal feels a bit mechanical leading me to believe my slave could conceivably crap out in the forseeable future...damn.

I tried searching first but I'm looking for a write-up (some pics would be awesome) on what's involved in replacing the slave cylinder. When I searched I found a ton of threads on swapping from internal to external but I'm lucky enough to all ready have it (Glad I found my 95!). I know it's fairly straightforward but I'm learning as I go, good at mechanics just never actually done a lot of things. I've read things about the master and slave being 1 prebled system? I'm just trying to find out how to do this in case my slave does indeed dite the dust.

Thanks

The clutch master and slave can be replaced separately, though I would strongly advise against replacing just one component. Yes, you should purchase the one piece, pre-bled master/hose/slave unit. They are available from numerous sources, I bought mine from Morris Jeep in Pompano bch FL, it was about $169.
I will look up Mean Max's master cyl thread which should be helpful to you. As far as the clutch slave end, merely unbolt the two mounting bolts, and there is also a retainer which fastens the hose to the front driver's side of the bellhousing.
When you reinstall the clutch slave end, make sure the plunger is seated in its place in the end of the clutch fork mechanism, do not cut or remove the white plastic plunger retaining straps--that was the most important piece of advice in the whole reply--the straps are designed to break the first time you push in on the clutch pedal at the completion of reassembly.

Okay here's the clutch master thread. Your master will be the same. Just ignore the part about disconnecting the hydraulic line. It is a wee bit tricky removing the two nuts that fasten the master unit to the firewall as clearance is close, but otherwise this is a pretty basic job.

Post up any questions you have along the way.

That was fast

This is just one more reason I love this site, lol. I post this up before work and by the time I go to this site at work I've got all the info I was looking for. I'm gonna wait a while to see if it gets any worse (only had the Jeep 3 weeks) before I do anything, but this is EXACTLY what I was looking for. Thanks a lot.
