That much gap between the converter and flex plate is too much, you run the risk of pulling the converter too far out of the front pump drive lugs and input splines. 1/8"-3/16" should be considered maximum gap. You will need to shim the converter at the mounting points with washers or custom made shims.

You don't have the flexplate on backwards do you?? Converter mount pads should face back toward the transmission.
