iB5 was a very common gearbox in small Fords. You will find it in pretty much all 5 speed Fiestas up until the one launched this year. It's also in all 1.4 and 1.6 petrol Focuses. The 2.0 and the XR/ST/RS models tended to use the stronger MTX75. I don't think Ford ever sold the iB5 with a LSD.

I have a collection of these PG1 gearboxes. I have the clutch, flywheel and driveshafts too if interested.

Obviously getting them to you is a massive issue. If you can sort collection then maybe we can sort something.

Thanks but I found one on ebay yesterday with Make and Offer on it and my offer of 40 was accepted and I bought a pair of drive shafts last night.

The flywheel has me wondering though, as my 1.8 120 engine came fitted with the IB5 box, will the flywheel need changing to suit the PG1?

Best bet would be to get a pic of your flywheel and possibly find a part number on it for comparison.

Your flywheel and clutch will need swapping to the PG1 type. Do you know what type of clutch operation you are going to use?

The MG F uses a hydraulic.

MG ZR a cable.

Never heard anyone using the MG ZS sealed system on a conversion.

It's one bolt holding the arm to the box but obviously you need the correct one!

I'll go with hydraulic operation, the gearbox has a slave cylinder attached.

Not much flywheel info about on the net, no one mentions different types other than the 1.4 has different sensor trigger holes

The IB5 clutch is smaller diameter. The spines on it are different from the PG1 so you actually cannot use the wrong one even if you tried.

Thanks, that's saved me some swearing and struggling for sure

Slight snag, just went to remove the clutch pressure and was confronted with what look like Torqx headed bolts? trip to the shops in the morning, I have more torqx male type than I know what to do with but not a single socket type

I think I'll start another thread on abnormal tools.
