Internal Slave Cylinder to External Conversion

I am having trouble with my internal slave cylinder and planning on doing the conversion to an external. I have a 93 with a 4.0L which I assume means that I have an AX-15 transmission. The only question I have is if I can use a bell housing from a 94+ ax-5, or does it have to be an ax-15? I only ask because I don't want to get the wrong one. Does it have to be a 94 and up 4.0L donor jeep? Also, what is the full span of years that is compatible? 94 - ?

Thanks

Yes, you will have the AX-15, and NO, you can not use the bellhousing from a AX-5.

You can use the bellhousing from 95 and up. Some late 94 model may have it, but make sure the seller sends you pics if your buying online. You can use one from TJ's and even one from a TJ NV3550. Thats what I am useing. The AX-15 and NV3550 use the exact same bellhousing.

'93 YJ 4.0L, AX-15, NP-231HD/SYE, 8.8in rear, OME 2.5 lift, home made front hub conversion, hydroboost. Warn M10000 winch. Currently building a stroker.

'79 Cherokee Chief, 401 MPFI fuel injection, T-18/D-20 and hydroboost. Otherwise stock.

94 to 2004 had the ax-15 and external slave.
All 1994 YJ's have the external slave not just late production.
As Cobra Jeep says 2005 and up with the NV3550 to when they dropped the 4.0 will also work.

All other things being equal, the simplest solution is the best.

That parts list looks surprisingly familiar.
I'm not familiar with the AC Delco clutches,but it's probably as good as any other.
I used the exact parts from xtremeterrain 4 years ago when I did my conversion and everything still works as good as the day I did it.
I have never had any problem with the clutch and I have never had to add any fluid to the master over the 4 years since I did it.
