You really want it as tight as you can get it WITHOUT binding at all. You don't want to feel the teeth as you spin it by hand. You going to feel the teeth engaging, you just don't want a chunk, chunk, chunk. As you spin it. Please add grease
I tried to shim both sides to see what would happen and it was worse so I just shimmed the opposite side of the ring gear and it's smooth.. Added some grease and now I can continue. Thanks!
