    No-One can tell you how much shim to use or not use by the information you supplied.
    You gonna have to get under the car and check your end play with the converter to know if you will need to shim or Not to shim...

    to do this correctly, you have to have a 1/4 stub put on converter to keep it in crank. then put conv. in all the way then bring it out .125 from pump and shim you'r bolt lugs. this is how i was told to do it on mine from trans specialties. hope this helps
