no clutch- 87 Jeep Wrangler YJ

I have a 5 speed 87 Jeep Wrangler YJ (6 cylinder) and I completely lost the clutch today. The pedal goes all the way down and I am not able to shift gears. I believe it is the clutch slave cylinder. This is an 87 that had the peugot transmission. Would anyone be able to point me in the right direction as to where I might find instructions as to how to replace the slave cylinder?

Google since I do not know and it could be external or internal slave. I am not versed in what the standard jeeps came with by year

I have a link to the FSMs if you want to know how to fix it. Its internal and a major pain in behind to get at all the parts you got to replace....

I've had some issues with my clutch as well recently on my 87. One thing I keep seeing repeated over and over is make sure you know what needs replaced. From what I gather if your slave cylinder is bad you're going to see brake fluid around the bell housing. If it is the master you're going to see fluid around it on the firewall. Your clutch is internal with that transmission and the tranny needs pulled back. If you're not seeing fluid on the bell housing I'd consider bleeding (and flushing) the fluid first perhaps locating a leak elsewhere in the process. if that doesn't work, then the slave may be gone. here's the a autozone instructional for your transmission.

And here is the slave cylinder instructional

I am not very experienced so if anyone else has input you should pay attention to that. I've been researching it for the last few days and that's what I've found so far. And it makes sense to buy a premium slave so you don't have to do it again, but when mine does go I'll either replace the whole clutch while I'm down there or just replace the tranny to a better one. We'll see.
