    95 ford explorer xlt
    ok guys this is my first post here so i just want to say hello to all of you and i hope someone here can help me out.i bought a 97 model 4.0 ohv crate motor to go in my 95 explorer. for the deal i got on it i couldnt afford not too. i figured out the rest of the stuff on my own with the wiring cam sychronizer etc. i had to go out and buy a new flywheel and bolts.i was going to drop it in yesterday after mounting the flywheel ,clutch, pressure plate but something told me to try to trun the motor over. it was jammed up because the flywheel is rubbing the motor. i have been reading up on a flywheel spacer or shims. i dont know which one myself. does this motor need this spacer or the shims? the 95 motor didnt have anything like that. im confused as to what to do. this is the first time i have ever had this kind of problem. what would be the ford part numbers on them? would there be a specific thickness with this flywheel spacer or shim? thanks in advance. i went to the dealer a few days ago and the only thing they showed is that flywheel spacer with the auto tranny flywheel. mine is a 5 speed. he didnt show one there. im confused. helllllllllllllllp meeeeeeeeeeeeeee. pleeeeeeease.
