I did not get any info from your link, but thanks for a prompt reply!
I'll have to get to the autozone for a Haynes, I guess. Stay Cool!

Not sure what else you want to know. The R&R procedure for the starter is right there in autolibrary.org. Use the link I have below.

The pictures at Chilton's wont load but here is the R & R description. It does mention shims.

Partially lower the starter to access the wiring.
Support the starter, then disconnect the electrical leads.
Remove the starter from the vehicle. Note the location and number of any shims (if used).
