Post starter

I have a 64-66 Chevy 283. The motor will turn over fast enough to take a compression test with the spark plugs out but will hardly turn over with them in. I know there are shims that you can put between the starter and bell housing. I don't have any in now. How can you tell if you need them? Are there different thickness shims and are they available? Thanks for your help, you guys have been a big help in the past. I didn't know I was so dumb about relatively simple things. Maybe I'm getting old.
