About to start slave cylinder...

I'm about to drop the tranny and replace my clutch and slave cylinder... Was just wondering if anybody had some advice or tips for me before I dive into this. Seemed like such an easy job before I got out here to start it haha. Thanks.

The only thing I can think of is have a buddy help.

Here is a tip to help align the transmission during reinstallation. Remove one of the bolts from the bell housing and take it to the local hardware store. Purchase 2-4 bolts of the same diameter and thread count but about 2.5-3 inches longer. I generally use just 2 bolts but I've heard some use more. Personal preference. These will serve as guide pins for helping align the tranny properly. When you get back to the house cut the head off and use a dremel or hacksaw to cut a slot at the end you just cut. The slots you cut in the ends are there so you can remove them with a screwdriver if they won't turn by hand once the tranny is secured to the engine. Next space them evenly around the engine block and slide the tranny on. I generally put the 2 that I use in the bolt holes closest to the left and right sides of the jeep and use the jack to control the vertical alignment.

Hope that helps.

I'm in the middle of pulling mine, does the transfer come out with the transmission, or should they be seperate pulls?

On my '93 wrangler, if I remember correctly, the transfer case was bolted to the trany, so they came out together. You are definately going to want some help, even if they're not really mechanicaly inclined. You need somebody to help you lift the tranny and help you hold it for about five minutes at a time.
