Question about Chevrolet Camaro
In the kit of bits and bobs you got with the starter, there should have been a small, round feeler gauge rod just for this purpose. Add/remove shims as needed so that the rod barely slips between the teeth of throw-out gear and starter ring where they mesh together. This can be checked with starter in place, the throw-out gear in the starter nose housing pushed forward and into the ring gear manually. This will require you to leave the trans bell housing cover off to check.
If all goes well, the starter should sound sharp and engage with no whine or grind.

Tips for a great answer:
Shim the starter if applicable.
In order to add pinion to ring gear clearance a full size shim must be used. Do not shim only 1 starter mounting bolt. There are 3 shims available in different shapes (for clearance). All are 1 mm (0.039 in) thick.
When you took off the old starter did you see any thin strips of metal ?
