87 YJ 4.2 manual.
newish Ford style starter.
It has the aluminum plate between the engine and bell housing.
The starter fits snuggly in the hole in the plate.

The starter motor looks crooked on the bell housing and is noisy like it's shimmed wrong. The starter is almost touching the oil pan.

Is there another plate or adapter missing?
Do they normally have shims on these?

I have replaced the bolts with clean ones and tried to get it strait.
