Slave cyllinder clarification

Looks like I'll be changing my slave cyllinder...in reading an online manual I am not quite sure how it is positioned.

When the transmission is removed...is the slave cyllinder attached to the front of the trans...over the shaft? This is what I think the diagram is trying to show...

OR, is it attached to the bellhousing? If attached to the bellhousing do I need to remove the bellhousing to get to the slave cyllinder?

Will I need a clutch alignment tool for this job?

Thanks in advance.

I'm assuming you have a 93 or later YJ if you think you have an internal slave.
The slave is on the main shaft of the tranny. If the clutch,pressure plate and throw out bearing haven't been changed in awhile I would do it while its out to keep from going back thru dropping it again anytime soon. ClutchCity and CarolinaClutch are the 2 places I would go for quality Luk clutchs.
If you aren't changing the clutch then you shouldn't need the allignment tool because you wont be dropping the clutch/pressure plate. That tool is used to line up the clutch/pressure plate to the flywheel input hole for the input shaft of the tranny.
HTH

That helps...the diagrams I looked at were a bit vague, but it appeared that the slave was attached to the front of the transmission...what I was unclear about was whether or not the bellhousing needed to come off and if so did that mean I also had to release the pressure plate/clutch.

According to the previous owner's paperwork he had the clutch and clutch master cyylinder replaced in October 2009....at that time the slave cyllinder was NOT replaced unfortunately...had it failed this quickly I might have been able to go back with the previous owner to the shop and had the work done under some sort of warranty repair.

Since the slave cyllinder was not replaced at the same time as the clutch I get to do the job. Not a big deal, good thing I like to tinker...and of course I'm grateful to be able to do this and not have to pay someone else to do it.

As for a replacement slave cyllinder, seems to me I should pay a little more for a good piece...no autozone or pepboys...is NAPA a better alternative. Where are people buying the slave cyllinders?

No Napa is no better. Most all of the parts houses are now going to china parts and with yours being internal I would especially not go with an after market slave.
Check for online OEM factory dealers and get the quote for the oem part then go to your local dealer and try to get them to price match,,most of the time they will. If not then order it online. Do the google search for the part and several dealers should pop up then price shop for the lowest and then go by the local dealer.

This way you can take it home with you, if they wont then smile as you walk away to order it. lol

Had time to call one local dealership today...online slave cylinder price is about $105 shipped from MoparPartsAmerica.com. I asked local dealership if they price matched...he said no. Local price 177 plus tax. When I told him of the internet price he didn't believe me, but then said he could sell to me for $145 plus tax...still not low enough. I'll have a little more time tomorrow to call a couple of other dealerships in town. Probably going to be ordering the internet piece.

Anyone have any dealings with MoparPartsAmerica.com? Looks like a dealership in Oregon.

Thanks
