    Can you shim a starter to much? I just replaced it today and when I shimmed the last one a year ago it only needed a half of the thinnest one but today I used the three that came with the starter and I had to buy another pack of them and used all of them also to get the clearance between the flywheel and the shaft on the starter. Its like 1/4" or 3/8" about of shimms. It starts and sounds fine but is it going to be cool with that much?

    should be as long as the bolts are tight and there are no other problems.
