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?
