1.9 dw8 to b 1.8 xud engine swap
Hi, I bought a real clean 2003 1.9 berlingo but it had a stuffed  engine. I have a rotten mk1 berlingo but it has a real good engine so the plan was to swap the dw8 with the xud. All went to plan until I realised that the xud has a pull clutch arm and the dw8 has a push. No worries swap the boxes so now the xud has a dw8 box. Thought it would be simpler than changing cables ect. Now went to get a timing belt kit for the xud when realised its actually a 1.8xud and not a 1.9. No problems Im thinking its the same block so everything is bound to line up. Nah it dont, the bottom mount/driveshaft mount doesn't fit on the xud block and the xud one sits too high for the driveshaft to enter the diff. Does anyone know how to fix this? Any other mount for the pug/cit range fit?  Thanks in advance.
