By turning the plate, do you mean rotating it or flipping it over? Could it be installed backwards? The ring gear looks to be quite a distance from the block, but the pictures don't show the bellhousing/trans flange area.

You said the tooth mesh is fine, do you have the correct clearance with the starter is engaged? Not binding?
You can never have too much power, just not enough traction...
