I say rip it apart. It's a simple rebuild. Plus you'll learn a lot about it by going through it. Just be gentle when pulling the synchro rings and the engagement gears (not sure what they are called) with the round springs and "feet". They can be a pain to get them back to how they ate supposed to sit.

Yessir. That's what I thought! And thanks for the clicky.

Which pilot bearing?
I am replacing the ax15 in my 93 yj with one from a 97 tj. What is the correct pilot bearing for this swap? Thanks

The '93 & later should have the 0.750" pilot bearing.

I sure don't. I use LuK clutch kits in my shop, and they include the pilot bearing in the kit.

That would be a 53009180AB for the 97 TJ.... about $18 at the stealership.

Use either Timken or National brand part number SCE1295 or equivalent. This part number applies to the '93 YJ 4.0L and the '97 TJ 4.0L models.

$6.81 @ www.rockauto.com

Thanks for the info guys. I am assuming that the release bearing and clutch/master cylinder from the 1994+ will work.

If you're swapping to an external slave, yes.

Also, use the YJ shifter.

Max, you are the man. This helped me a lot. However, I am having trouble with my clutch now. I have bled it 5 times, two times using the pump and hold method and 3 times just letting it bleed out on its own. My clutch feels good most of the time, but when I've been cruzing for while without shifting, the first push of the clutch is soft and does no good. A couple pumps and it's good for a while. Any suggestions?

You still have air in the line. Often this can be accredited to a less than perfect o-ring seal between the master cylinder & the hose on '91 & newer models.

Actually yes! Luckily for you, your line has a threaded fitting at the master cylinder. Have an assistant pump the pedal & hold it while you crack the fitting open & then closed at the master. Most air occurs at the line where it loops over the master. Bleed it there first, then below as you normally would.
