You could use feeler gauges (or shim stock) to bolt (gently) between the trans and engine at 4 spots to get the desired thickness measurement,(checking clearnace at the TO Bear) then obtain a piece of aluminum sheet (very easy to cut with shears) with the thickness that you have determined is correct and make a pattern on it, then cut it and install.
You can transfer the pattern to the aluminum with a scribe , lay the aluminum against the bell, and lay it on the work bench, scribe the outline and the bolt holes and the dowel holes. Drill the holes and cut with a good sharp set of shears.
Fact is stranger than Fiction
