So...long story short, my starter is not allowing me to get the full engagement I need. I have a CVR high torque starter w/180 degree adjustment for clearance purposes. Now..I took some pictures with my phone to visually get an idea whats going on. It seems that, the starter housing needs to be more in towards the drivers side to get full contact.
My question is....Does it matter if I rotate the starter adapter that allows clearance for the housing gonna make a difference? Is there a way to shim a starter thats not mounted to the block? Would it be okay to (possibly) ablong the two starter bolt holes to where it's closer with the flexplate? Has anyone else had this problem, or will as different starter just totally fix this problem? Any ideas & help please. Thanks.
This second picture I actually pulled the gear outward a bit to get an idea where its meshed with the flexplate.
