Angry Slave cylinder

Just put a new clutch slave cylinder in my 91 wrangler test drove it a few miles and worked great. Drove it the next day got home and fluid dripping out of the bell housing lasted 12 miles! And right back like it was! thats a lot of work for nothing. I know its the o-ring again I used a POS perfection slave. My question is do they make one that has fittings and not o-rings? Would love to go external but thats not an option because im not putting that much money in it. Its a good looking jeep runs good but im so PO at it im about to part it out.

Thanks for any help

I got my slave from NAPA autoparts. Something goes wrong with it, they replace it. No questions asked. The throwout bearing built into it was sweat. Very quiet and felt precision. Been a couple of hundred miles and no issues. I did have to pull the transmission down a second time. When I got it running for the first time after I purchased it I found 3rd gear grinding. Purchased a used TJ AX5 from a 2000 to replace the one I had. I could have gone external but the slave was missing from it and the throwout bearing felt no where near as nice as the one on the internal so I swapped the bell housing over and used the internal. Now I have 5 good gears and it is still shifting nicely. wOOt!

The make a couple diffrent types. One is good one is bad. The one you wand has the throwout bearing built in up front. You can see a metal bearing wile looking at it. The other type dosent have the metal bearing.
