Question about 1999 Chevrolet K1500
You are moving the strater away from the flywheel when you put shims on it, this normally will make it worse. A clang will tel you its too close. When you got your starter shims did it come with a little piece of wire about the size in diamiter of a ink pen refill? if so that is the gauge for using the shims.You place it on the shaft of the starter, and it should just slide between the flywheel and the shaft. You may need to move the starter closer to the flywheel, this can be accomplished by only shiming the outside bolt on the starter- hope this helps.
