Default Flywheel trouble need help!!!

I have a 1995 5.0 with a t5 trans. i pulled the trans and thought while its down ill buy a new clutch and flywheel. i bought a ram steel flywheel part number 1525. and a clutch to match it. when i took off my old flywheel and tried putting this one on the bolt patterns were different but only one bold hole was off. i took it to a friend and he said when the motor was rebuilt they could of swapped the crank out. So my question is. What year does the stock flywheel fit ( part # RF-EIZR-6380-A2A) there is a b circled and a 273P after. From my understanding this was the correct flywheel for my year is that right. I am going to call ram up tomorrow and see if they can refund me or send out a new flywheel.

placing the old flywheel against the new flywheel back to back will not help you... dont do it.

You tried incorrectly... The flywheel has an indexing bolt (the one you couldn't get lined up) Get back under the car and turn the flywheel until the bolts all line up.

Don't argue, just go do it. (and dont be like AODE08... DO NOT try to elongate any of the holes!)
