Default alright i give up

i bought a basket case of miselanious f4/f4i parts and im now try ing to put them together, the issue is i didnt buy these nor did i take them apart a buddie of mine bought all this **** off ebay years ago and i bought the lot from him, so lets start with the front end

from him i got what i asume is an f4i triple clamp and forks then i bought a f4i front wheel axle and spacers
the spacers i bought are two very differant sizes and when i go to put it together there isnt enough room for them both and the fork hits the wheel hub niether one seems to be correct
so my questions are how to tell what triple clamps i have, what the distance between the forks should be and what legnth the spacers should be?

im ****en lost...please help

The spacers aren't supposed to be equal size. Sounds like you have them reversed. Switch sides and try it again
