ok so pretty much done with the installing of the 95 5 speed into my legacy..... i got a 95 mt starter but the damn thing wont fit..... both the flywheel and the starter came off the same car ( 95 legacy mt). i know that it is different than the 4eat starter cuz the mt one is longer and actually will fit inside the hole.... the problem is that the starter is hitting i would think the flywheel. i would turn the engine over by hand while someone is holding the starter there and i can hear the teeth hitting.... is it supposed to be shimmed maybe?

Bolt it in tight and then re-check.

It's pretty close clearances, having the starter cocked to one side or the other even slightly can cause some rubbing.

Are you getting the lower bolthole onto the stud???

Did you move the hillholder bracket and Negative cable boltdown?
