Torque converter to far from flywheel

I swapped transmissions in my work truck 89 chevy 350 700-R4 and I have 3/8 inch space between converter and flywheel. I checked the knowledge base and found that 1/8 in is proper. But I could not find anything about the proper method of spacing. Is it OK to just use a couple of hardened flat washers and 1/4 inch longer flywheel bolts, or do I need to find one piece 1/4 inch spacers? Is this a common problem or should this be a red flag that something could be wrong with trans rebuild or converter.
MM

I just use washers that are Flat, I slide them over a file a few times to take off any high spots, I then measure the stack with a caliper and get all 3 stacks exactly the same. while you are under their you also may want to check the run-out of the flywheel you are using, and make sure their are no burs around the bolt holes.

I had to use washers between my TQ converter and flexplate on my white caprice. I didn't go through as much trouble as Leo did, I just put the washers in there.
