I just put a new Centerforce flywheel in and see that the starter ring is a bit further spaced into the bellhousing than the original one was. It looks like the starter teeth MAY barely engage the flywheel. I read up on shimming the starter for proper tooth engagement but can they be adjusted in/out for gear depth? Also posted on Engine section.

Rick, is it the same tooth count/diameter as the one you are replacing? There are basicaly 2 different sizes depending on the diameter of the flywheel. 12-3/4" or 14" flywheels.

Yeah, both are 153 tooth flywheels for 10 1/2" clutch. I know the flywheel is seated on the crank but it's pretty apparent that the starter gear is going to barely catch the ring gear. The original flywheel has the ring gear about 3/16" closer towards the starter which places the engagement point about nicely on the starter gear.
