I'm replacing my slave cylinder and, when I opened up the trans to get to it, I found the pin and retaining nut were in pieces inside the bell housing.
Since the old pin piece I found is shorter than the new one that came with the clutch kit I'm suspecting that a small piece of the old pin is broken off inside the pin hole. I have no idea how to get it out?!
I put in the new pin and it feels like it doesn't go in as far as it should (but I have no frame of reference).
Thoughts on what I should do? Should I assume the broken pin is still in there and not proceed until I get something out? (suggestions on how?) Should I ignore it, put in the pin in anyway and assume it'll stay put? (thinking not).
The other option I suppose is to remove the big plate with the big bolts that the hole is actually in and hpoe I can push the pin out from the other side. But, I dont know what that plate is and what I may be getting into if I remove it.
Here's a pic of the 'big plate' I refer to above (thanks to another JeepForum poster for this pic):
