Need a little bellhousing help please...

I am going to swap an AX15 into my wife's 1987 YJ with a 4.2L Is this the bellhousing that I need in order to convert to external slave while I am at it? His description says it's for late 80's vehicles, but it obviously (I think?) has the provisions for an external slave cylinder.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It looks like that is the same bellhousing you already have, for a BA10/5.

Maybe that's where I am getting confused. I thought I read on here that an external slave bellhousing had the two bolt holes which are for mounting the external slave cylinder. A bellhousing for internal slave does not have the two bolts - is that correct? If so, even though the ebay description says it's for '87-88' wranglers and '87-'89 cherokees, it does have the two bolts which indicates the description is incorrect and it is actually an external slave bellhousing?

I just want to make sure I don't buy something I don't need and then pay to have it shipped halfway across the country

The one listed on ebay is for the Peugeot BA/10.
The two bolt holds you see in the ebay one are only for the plate and rubber gromet that the two internal salve cylinder lines go thru.

Don't buy it....
