92 clutch issues

I have a 92 yj and I have clutch issues. It is very hard and sometimes impossible to get into 1st and 2nd gear and it always grinds when I try to put it in reverse. I have to shut it off in order to put it into 1st or reverse. Once I get it into 1st I can then get into 2nd bit not 2nd to start with.

I would say if the gears all shift smoothly with the engine off (not running) I would start by making sure the hydraulic components are working properly i.e. slave and master make sure there are no leaks and everything is bled properly,if all is well there you will need to go with a new clutch kit ,disc,pressure plate,throwout bearing .Good luck .

What exactly does slave and master mean?

the master hydraulic clutch cylinder is on the firewall by the brake booster
pressing the clutch generates pressure in it that is transferred to the slave cylinder inside the bellhousing of the transmission that disengages the clutch

the master tends to wear out and the slave tends to leak, resulting in insufficient total pressure to fully disengage the clutch

Does anyone have any diagrams of all the things you need to do. What I have been reading is that they are internal and I have to drop the transmission to look at them, is that true?

Yes, you will have to drop the transmission. Once you do, its right there, only a small pin holding it in. I just finished doing this myself.
