So I had some money again and started buying up some more parts for my toy. 1995 z28 with a stroker. I bought a powermaster xs high torque starter to deal with the extra load of the 383 compression and the rear mount battery. I have upgraded cables for grounds and power already. When I removed my starter to install the new one I found the starter pinion gear and the flexate ring gear are touching without throwing out the pinion. There should be attests 1/16 inch clearance according to powermaster. I got the right part number starter the 9502. Has anyone else had this issue?? If so how did u fix? I called powermaster about a possible shim but haven't gotten a response yet. Thanks as always guys. :LS1LT1flag:

Well the gap of the teeth is fine. The starter comes with a shim set that goes over the bolt holes for that. The problem is front to back, not up and down. There should be clearance from the aft end of the pinion gear to the forward of the ring gear at 1/16". I can't slide it forward bc it only bolts in one way, so it would be an internal shim to the starter.
