Default Mounting f3 rear rim to f2

So i decided to buy a used f3 rear rim with decent tire for like 50 bucks. The idea was to save myself some money since i needed to buy a new tire and i wanted a larger rear rim. problem im running into is since the rim is wider my spaces wont fit. so its not a direct swap as i thought, so if anyone was thinking of doing this youll need all the spacers as well or to measure the rear wheel assembly of both combos and order the correct spacers.

I didnt get a good measurement before the bike fell off the stands with the rear rim off.. bad day but it appears that the "depth" of the spacers would work but its the "thickness" that wont allow it to fit. so i just order the f3 spacers and axle off ebay.
