Question need help, clutch related

quick intro... bought cm stage 3 and fidanza aluminum flywheel, car was put taken apart and put back together by ford dealership in long island, ny.
starter never engaged flywheel after that day, after about a month worth of push starting my car, me and my friend took it apart, and put back
*stock flywheel
*cm disc
*stock pressure plate (cm didn't match with stock flywheel)
*cm throw out bearing (didn't have the old one)

now the car starts but you can't get in gear when is running, when engine is of is fine.

so questions are

could be that there is a diff. betwin stock and aftermarket throw out bearing ?
also we noticed that there was about a 1/4 of an inch unused on the clutch disc, all the way around, so if that is making contact to the flywheel that could be also causing the problem...

where can i get an stock throw out bearing, should i replace the disc as well ???

thanks
javier

You CANNOT interchange parts either go with the stock stuff or the CM stuff

As for the flywheel / starter issue it sounds to me like you may of been sent a ZX3 flywheel or if the wrong starter bolt is put in the wrong place it locates the starter in the wrong position and the teath wont engage

First make sure you have the wrong Fly Wheel

you wouldnt beleive how many call that has changed clutch and hear there starter zing but wont turn the engine over and i tell them to move the starter around and make sure the correct starter bolts are in the proper location
