pepi Here is a link with pictures to show what you are after I'd stay with the .020 measurement cause it is kind of middle of the road..

You want to make the measurement for the clearance between the starter gear and flywheel in figure 1,

not that backlash pictured above figure 1

pepi Have you checked the clearance of the flywheel and starter gear when it is meshed. I see you are messing with the shims but you must also take measurements when changing them around..

85 silverado, 350, tried shimming, and it started grinding, took the smallest shim out, now it sounds and starts like its shimmed too close, 2nd starter, 2nd set of shims, once i replaced the starter, it started just fine the first dozen times, but after the motor got to operating temp, is when the trouble started, any guesses?
