First off, are the correct bolts being used? if so, remove all the shims, clean the bolts. Inspect the starter, in the holes the bolts go through you`ll notice 2 grooves made into the starter the shoulder of the bolt falls into. Clean the grooves. Bolt starter back on, torque the bolts to 35 ft lbs. Make sure there are no washers on the bolts.
Next, what do the grounds look like? If you have a simple ground from battery to alternator bracket this won`t cut it. Run a ground from the block to the battery and another from block to frame. Next, check the spark timing. Check the mechanical advance in the distributor and make sure it`s not sticking open.
