YES. Replace the ball & fork, and may as well do the TB too. There is a zerk fitting on the bellhousing to grease that part, most people miss it. You will notice a huge difference.

Well all parts are in. Seems to have done the trick. As for that grease fitting, I couldn't find it on the bellhousing. Is it covered by something? The TB is something that I want to keep well greased in the future.

It for greasing the pivot ball. Should be right below where the pivot ball bolts in, IIRC, been a while since I greased mine.

Talking worn

The fork and pivot need to be repaced as a unit and if there is any wear (sounds like you have a lot) on the pivot. These things usally last about 100,000 miles so you should be replacing them every time you do a clutch -- on the 1993 there is actually a grease fitting hiding in there as well.

1993 style outside slave cyl WARNING: DO NOT over tighten the bleed screw on the slave you will crack the housing. First take it out look at it and you will see that it is tappered to fit the hole so no great amount of torque is needed to seat it. Yes I broke the first one I did LOL.

OPPs guess I should have read page 2 before I posted -- yup still mind numbing drugs.

Is it possible and/or recommended to update to the internal slave cylinder? I just really don't feel good about that plastic slave sitting there waiting to get hung up on a rock while off-road...

I don't see why not. I have not had a later model NV4500 apart so don't know what is involved. On the bright side The under carraige of my 1993 looks like WW111 and have never hit the slave in years of harsh use hunting.

I do a certain amount of "rockcrawling" that just seems to be begging for one to hit the slave...

I figure that if I'm in there and replacing clutch, fork, pivot, etc, etc I might as well upgrade if possible... Suppose it would be a different master cylinder as well?

Default Slave Cylinder

Didn't know you could get an internal setup. A little late this time as I already have a new slave cylinder, but will keep in mind for next time.

Damn... Knew that this project was coming up for me but had hoped that it would last a little longer. Driving home today I went to downshift and the clutch pedal went to the floor without disengaging... It had been getting harder to shift lately as well - pretty much as you were describing things at the beginning of the thread...

History: clutch line burst when I first went to look at the truck, seller replaced it; last summer the slave cylinder broke off where the clutch line connects to it; now this...

Knew I should have gone through and replaced everything at the beginning of the troubles, but last year was insane and I kept telling myself I'd patch things up to just get through the current crisis - which turned into the next crisis, and the next, and the next...

Sorry... Just venting...

Question looking at this page: http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/x,ca...,parttype,1993

Of the last four ACDelco options I'm reading it as the first of the four is the clutch kit for the dual-mass flywheel, the second is if a single mass flywheel was installed by the dealer previously, the third is the dual-mass kit from the first one with the flywheel included, and the fourth is the single-mass kit from the second one with the flywheel included.

Based on the prices, I'm guessing that is correct but am I missing anything?

Have to pull the inspection plate tomorrow to see what shape things are in and what flywheel I have - although I am pretty much guessing it is the original dual-mass one.
