I have the opposite problem of most guys. I have a new SFI flex plate and a new starter. The teeth of the starter are too far away from the teeth on the flex plate. This is without any shims. If I put in any shims it would move the starter teeth further away from the flexplate teeth. Is there any way to move the starter closer to the flex plate? I thought of trying to oblong the mounting holes on the starter to move it closer but that's not nearly as simple as it sounds since the bolts pass right tight to the starter housing at the center of the bolt hole channel Is there anyone out that that successfully remedied this problem?
