not a hemi question any chevy guys out there.

I know this is not a hemi question but a Chevy question.
I have a problem with a starter shim. question is How can i get the starter to fit closer to the flywheel?? they say the gap must be 1/8 in between ring gear and the starter shaft.mine is sitting 3/8 in away and is chewing up the flywheel there are NO shims in it if i add shims it moves it farther away.HELP. it's a 1985 K5 blazer with a 350 motor and a 350 trans

Or wrong flexplate.
Keeping this on a hemi theme, converting to a 727/A518 trans using a hemi engine, even through the trans will bolt to the engine the flexplate/starter combination has to be chosen carefully to have the fit/ clearance to operate correctly.
