Do these starters have spacing shims?Since I put in a new clutch my starter has been making a noise when it engages.My buddy took the starter off and put it on so I am not sure if it had a shim in it or not.Dont remember seeing one but that dont mean there wasnt one.

No. There shouldnt be any shims.
I had some strange noise at one time after replacing my clutch and when I investigated, I found the inspection plate bolts were loose and the plate was rattling like an angry snake when the starter would engage.
