Internal clutch slave cylinder vs external. You will need to swap the front bearing retainer. Other than that they should be the same.

89 2.5 TBI, 4" RC lift, 1" Booms, SYE, Adams Driveshafts front and rear, Ford 8.8 with 4:88s, BFG 33X12.50X15, and a ton of other stuff.

All you need is a different bell housing, release bearing, clutch fork and external hydraulics.Ebay is a good scource for those parts.

I put an ax5 out of a 90 into my 95. I swapped the bell housing and bearing retainer and all the external slave stuff over with no problems

No - it all just bolts on. It'll be easy and obvious if you have both transmissions sitting in front of you. The hardest part is using RTV to seal up the bearing retainer (and it's not difficult!).

One thing to think about - is the input shaft diameter the same from 1991 to 1995? I'm not sure. Either way, it's not a huge deal, but you may need a new pilot bearing if the shaft size is different.
