Hello Blue, In order to ease your mind some the slave cylinder is inside the bell housing and it will not be in a clutch kit but needs to be replaced and when you have replaced the clutch assembly and slave cylinder,I recommend using DOT5 brake fluid which has a higher boiling point than DOT3 to bleed the system.

If the bearings were worn out due to high milage, the input shaft will have too much play in it. To replace all of the bearings is a big job, and a lot of shops won't do it. They may have replaced the transmission to save time, as replacing the bearing is very time consuming. So it all stems on what your final cost was.

My 2000 ford ranger and something draining battery

bad alternator possible or bad battery..even though its new that battery can be bad. I would take a volt meter and with the engine running check the volts of the battery..If the volts are 12 you need to replace alternator, if volts are 14 you need to check the battery. to check the battery hold the volt meter to the battery and have someone start the car..while the starter is cranking battery volts should not drop below 10volts.if they do your battery is bad.
