I cannot understand why it says 1.4 only. The 1.4, 1.6 and 1.8 heads are identical. The VVC is obviously different but the front of the engine timing setup are the same as a non VVC???

The flywheel, clutch plate and spring are all needed to be swapped. The clutch release bearing too. They are different sizes. You can try the plate on the IB5 box input shaft. It doesn't fit the PG1.

Could you be more specific with size? A dimension from the top of the front arch to outer edge of tyre is usually preferred.

I am using group 5 arches which give a old skool look but are 75mm wide.
