I've got a mk3 one in Lechlade (Gloustershire) its still on the van.

The van had a fire in the engine bay so I would be inclined not to use the steering rack (but its non PAS anyway) - but everything else is ok

Thanks Matt for replying, appreciate it. I’d like to try and see if I can find one closer but if I don’t have any joy and if yours is still available after not finding a closer one I’d be interested. Out of interest how much would you want for yours?

Havent thought about it yet!

I assume you are converting a beam axle van to IFS? If so a mk3 setup is marginally easier, but you don't get the benefit of vented brakes etc.

Hahaha no worries Matt, yes I’m wanting to convert a beam axle to IFS. Didn’t realise the Mk3 setup is marginally easier. I’ve fitted a Mk5 IFS setup before to my old Mk1 German fire van I used to have.

I did think about robbing the IFS from my Tourneo but don’t want to break it up as it’s a bit too good although it still needs welding :lol:

engine and gearbox now out of the scrap van. I need my trailer quite a bit over the next 4-6 weeks, after that I will get it on, pull the front subframe, rear axle, tailgate and scrap it...
