starter shiming due to align boring?

ever since i had my block align bored i have to shim the out side edge of my starter to get the gears to mesh and its still loud, i dont dare shim it any more, i think the more angle i put on it the less starter touches the block and the weaker the connection between them is. I was thinking that if i found an old starter that fit and milled the mounting pad down a bit then shimmed it back to fit i might get a better connection. any thoughts or has anyone else had this problem? with all the work i have in this engine the loud starter is embarrassing. thanks.
