Transmission Problems 1989 Wranglers

My 89 Jeep Wrangler was purchased on grounds of a good by and charity. Not being a top motor guy I later found that the engine had been replaced with a Ford straight six engine. I new that it needed a slave cylinder and master but the cylinder starting braking. The mechanic stated that after he put in a new clutch plate and put it back together they could not get it to go into any gear and had to make some modifications shaving the length of the slaved cylinder rod a sixteenth of an inch. After two replacements of the master and slave it appears that the engine is making a difference in matching with the clutch plate. More searching on the internet revealed that the 1989 Jeeps had a shifting problem. I am looking for ideas and a solution. Our next try might be shaving the rod 1/32 of an inch but that is just guessing. Thanks
