To answer your question.........NO.

 

The clutch master was changed in '91, and if you compare the 2 masters, the Renix era has the 2 bolts vertical, and the "newer" style has the 2 bolts horizontal.

 

If your still pumping the clutch, good chance the master is starting to go south.

 

Change it out with a new Renix era and replace the steel/rubber supply line also.

:huh???:

 

Um, I just swapped a '95 XJ One-piece Master/Slave into my '88 4.0L and both masters had vertical bolts. The '95 bolted right up to my '88 firewall. :???:

 

I would be more concerned with the slave's "throw" being correct vs. the 4cyl slave.

:shake: The question was 86 vs. 95 , so answering 88 vs 95 might not be relevant ? FWIW

Please re-read.

 

One of my peeves is posting of bum info. I've done it myself in the past and was humble enough to correct myself. :cheers:

 

The original poster went out and bought something based on this info...

You know, your right, so I double check my self :D

 

The '86 clutch master is only used from '84-'86, and the mounting holes are horizontal.

 

The '87-'90 clutch master mounting holes are vertical.

 

The '91-'96 clutch master mounting holes are vertical, with a stud at the top, and a plastic clip for the clutch petal connection.

 

So, to answer the OP question, No, A '95 clutch master Will Not Work on a '86. Besides the mounting holes, and the added stud in '91, the push rod is completely different.

 

Sorry for posting any mis-information :(

 

And I hope the OP went out and bought the '84-'86 clutch master cylinder, which would be the correct one.
