Are you talking about the clutch disc?

The IB5 pressure plate as aka clutch spring is a different diameter. The flywheel for a PG1 has a totally different bolt pattern.

The clutch plate, as in the bit that wears out, and fits the input shaft of the gearbox, has a different spline.

If I am not mistaken, the IB5 has 17 splines. The PG1 has 18.

This is why you need the flywheel, and 3 piece clutch.
