So the internal slave on my jeep is once again (third time) hemorrhaging clutch fluid, I believe the input ball bearing on the main shaft is starting to fail, it will whine when in neutral with the clutch let out. I am also sure that my second gear syncro is gone.
I decided enough is enough I am doing the external slave conversion. After a few weeks of searching craigslist I found a used ax15 from a 95 Cherokee sport. I unfortunately did not get a chance to drive it before hand, the guys said the engine it was attached to had 220k miles on it, and the clutch had been replaced within the past few months. And knowing little about the new to me transmission I thought I would rebuild it and then swap it with the one in my Comanche.
Well it is now opened up on my workbench and it really seems to look fine, at least to my untrained eyes. Here are some pictures of everything.
I may not have 25 posts yet so can someone help me out by quoting this part?
More pictures in my album:
And this is where my questions come in:
What do you guys think I should do next, rebuild it or run it to find out if anything is wrong? Mind you I have not purchased a rebuild kit yet, I would also need to acquire/borrow a hydraulic press
I do have a set of feeler gauges so i can check the tolerances on the shafts.
Any hints on what you would check for wear or clearance and/or replace while itís in this state?
