I'm no expert by any means, but I trust Mean Max on the issue.
Mean max has never steered me wrong, that was the first time I saw that thread, and as mentioned on that thread, I wasn't the only one who heard about the cone shaped flywheel. And it's nice to have a new one on hand during the install in case the old one is hooped, you can always return the new one.

The Puegot came standard in YJ's until after March 9, 1989 as a manufacture date. Your vehicle would have had a Puegot, but maybe it was changed out? I don't think it makes any difference in the clutch kit, but it will make a difference in the fluid you use for the tranny.
Regarding the flywheel and whether to replace vs. resurface, Read this thread. Mean Max is probably the man here when it comes to transmissions, has a great thread with questions and all on rebuilding the AX-15. I'd trust what he says. He also addresses the issue of the type Luk kit to use. The Rep kit is probably his recommendation. you should be fine with just resurfacing
Thanks for the input and yes I have a Ax15 , but now since you mention it I probably won't replace the MC it is working fine. " if it ain't broke don't fix it" right so should I have this same mentality with my problem since it is just my throw out bearing and not the actual clutch thats messed up?

Change your clutch components.
If it was me I would. But its your call.
mc can wait yes but I would change your clutch while your in there.
Flywheel is your call.

Or pull it all out and take pics and we can help you decide
