Slave Cylinder Help!

Hey guys...
Just dropped the transmission to replace the slave cylinder in my 2000 manual ranger. The hydraulic slave cylinder has a small thin throw out bearing on the end of it...but just purchased a clutch kit and it has a throw out bearing assembly that looks quite a bit different than the one we took off...which one has any of you guys used? Which one works better?

Ryan

The throw out and the slave should be integrated into one unit. No way to change one w/o the other....and there is no way in hell you shold change the throwout w/o changing the slave!

Make sure you got the right part. If it's different than the original, it probably wont work right.

the one we took off seems like its a far superior bearing...the part we got from Oreilly's has a closed bearing that seems like it's a lot cheaper
