Is there a difference between the thickness of automatic block plates and manual plates? When torqued, my starter grinds, but with the torqu loos3ened(1 turn) the grinding goes away. It is a manual with an automatic plate. Thanks

I had an old style manual starter and it wold not disengage from the flywheel completely(it turned as long as the engine did) and an automatic required 2 shims to clear. The bellhousing is from an 84 truck and I have the matching starter. We will see. I amy go back to the origional manual and try shimming it. Thanks everyone
