Angry 2.3 engine swap now flywheel rubs

After looking a month I had to go with LQK replacement engine my mechanic found. High Price... After swapping he said the starter must be bad because it hits flywheel. OK replace because I don't want to chew up the flywheel. Guess what it still hits flywheel. He guarantees the flywheel is tight correct and not the issue .Everything looks tight and lined up correctly.He ended up cutting down the bendix gear to give clearance. Not happy but paid and took home. Anyone have any guess? 2004 to 2009 uses same starter. Reg aspiration auto trans.Thanks for some clues.

Attachment 10652Attachment 10653Attachment 10654Somebody please give some input, The appearance of the flywheel looks like it was replaced the same way but, the tapered teeth are now on the inside next to the transmission. Did Mazda change the way the flywheel is made? If the 2.3L came out of a different year is that possible?
