sbc starter issues

i have a 84 s10 with a 350/350 set up out of a 76 c10. the starter doesnt even touch the flexplate. i believe i have the 153 tooth flexplate and i have the inline not staggered bolt starter. ive shimmed the outside of the starter to bring it in but im shimming out like a 1/4" and the bolts keep coming loose. im only getting like 3 starts out of it before it just makes a bunch of noise. my flexplate isnt tore up yet and i want to avoid that if possible. its to my understanding that the stright hole stater ( the one i have ) is for the small flexplate.... is there other size flex plates out there besides 153 and 168?
