When installing a new starter, how do you tell when and how many shims are required?

TIA.

Haven't seen a buick v6 need the starter shimmed before. At least on the few I've worked on.
 
i had to shim my starter. wwhen you get the stater you normally get a little round gauge. place that between the flywheel and the starter gear if its less or more then it needs to be shimmed.

No problems, just wanted to make sure there wasn't anything I should be doing... I don't want to cause a premature death.
