There's no set amount, it really depends on the proper clearance. When you replace your starter, you will definitely need one, just because rebuilt starters may be resurface. I would get to 1/16th" spacers, start with one, and if there's no grinding or anything and it's smooth, then you're good.

Never trust old shim setup to work w/ another starter.
Many brands come w/ shims and correct gauge. Automatic trans is hard to use the gauge... You need to find wire same size and bend that to work.
