Peugeot ba5/10 failure

Well, it's happened again.
The transmission in my 88 Comanche Chief has been roaring and grinding for about 3 years now and it's finally bit the dust.

I was about 15 miles from home and pulled into a driveway to turn around. When I tried to put it into reverse it hung up between two gears. I finally got it back out of gear ( it won't go into reverse) and drove it home very gently. It sounds awful.

I bought a replacement transmission about a year ago because I knew this day was coming.

I've thought about converting it to a better transmission but I only use the truck in the winter to haul firewood and the few odd trips to town to pickup material, etc, and just can't justify the expense and trouble, plus I'm lazy.....

Also, I now have two broken ba5/10 transmissions and I have a hunch that I can make another good spare transmission by combining the two.
The first one failed at 65K miles when a tooth broke off first gear on the cluster gear.
I didn't drive it over 20 miles when this happened before I swapped the transmissions.
The bearings and rest of the gears are still in good condition.

I figure that I can use the cluster gear out of this latest casuality.

One thing that I want to do for sure is to move the throwout bearing to the outside of the bell housing.
Anyone familiar with this process? How much trouble? Is it expensive?

Thanks in advance for any replies.
steve

there was no external slave offered for the peugeot so that's going to be next to impossible. AX-15s had both styles offered over the years.
