Crank locator sprocket 1999 Mustang GT motor with 2001 PI heads

I am putting together a new motor and switching parts over from the old . When I install the crank locator and torque down the timing cover the locator hits the timing cover and wont let the crank turn over. Did they use different parts or different sizes in different years, or did I do something wrong? Thank you for your help.

You put it on backwards. If you look on that crank locator it has the word "rear" and that side goes against the crank gear for the timing chains. You gotta pull it apart dude. I know every part to that 4.6 SOHC because I just built mine.

was not backwards, I put rear to the chains. Thats what I origionally thought also so I took it apart, and I had installed it correctly
