how thick do we need to go to avoid clashes? Seems to me the Engineers spent a few over-time hours to get it where it's at....do they recommend shims? sometimes they are required...like for differentials...so you can trace the profile on an aluminum can and use a tin snips to craft your own...only trouble is we don't know the thickness that we need...do we? if a trial and error situation would be certain that the starter is the correct model and put it squarely in the hands of your parts supplier....for HE is the one who's sellin' you a part that will work....and not CRACK housings~

You can buy shims on the HELP rack at most parts stores. or make your own using some good tin and snips for shaping.
