Default Top mount starter pinion depth adjustment?

My starters sound like they are grinding into the flywheels on my engines (BBC/ TRS) Is there any adjustment to shim the starter away from the flywheel like you would do if the starter was mounted on the bottom to the block? Nothing has really changed in the engine, same flywheel, starter belhousing.
