I noticed that after I replaced the oil seal that there is very little
clearance between the flywheel and the oil pan on my 1997 4runner with
a 4 cyclinder engine. When I pulled off the flywheel there was no
spacer. There is only about 2-3 millimeters of clearance. This seems
very strange, if flywheel was out of true than it would bind with oil
pan...??

Even if the flywheel were not true, 2 or 3 millimeters should be enough
clearance. When you say "flywheel," I assume that you have a manual
transmission. If you have an automatic transmission, make sure the drive
(flex) plate is not installed backwards.

Flywheel runout is in 10ths of a millimeter, not millimeters.

If it wobbled by three mill it would shake so much you couldn't drive it!!!!
