Unhappy Loud Screeech!

I just bought an 84 Camaro with a SB 350 in it, and as it turns out, I've had to replace almost everything on it, but I'm stuck in a rut now. I just replaced the starter and all I get when I try to turn it over is a loud screeching noise that rattles my ears, can anyone pleeeeeeeeeeeeease help me with this problem??

Well I add a shim to it, and it still does the same thing, how many shims is too many?? Before it started the screeching, it actually wanted to turn over but sounded like it wasn't firing and sometimes it sounded like a backfire from the exhaust manifold, so I checked the spark plugs and they were fine. Then I checked the distributer and thought the timing was off (I've been reading Chiltons) so I fixed the timing and thats when the screeching started.

If you add shims to the outside it will pull the starter in believe it or not. In the new starter box it should have had instructions on the proper mesh. The last time I did one I used a screwdriver to pry the drive into the flywheel and stuck the best fitting drill bit between the starter drive tooth top and flywheel tooth root. I dont remember for sure but I think the proper clearance is around .020 or .030.
