Did you measure the distance between the two? Sounds like it needs to be shimmed.

That's kinda what I was thinking but everybody said you shouldn't ever shim the starters on these cars!

Never heard that before. I just did my flexplate and 4l60e and it states right on the instructions to make sure it is within .010-.020 - measured mine and it was .020 so didn't need to shim.

Your measuring top to bottom distance between teeth.
