Inspection plate touches the flex plate?

When I drive I hear a rattle thought it was an exhaust leak. Further inspection I noticed one of the bolts on the lower side of the inspection plate was backed off. With the motor running I pushed the inspection plate to tighten the bolt. However, when doing this the inspection plate touches the flex plate. How is the possible? )Recall my previous post about the 401 was rebuilt by the dealer that could not fix the rear main seal!)

Could the flex plate be on backwards? I am sure it is offset one way or the other and maybe it's on wrong???

Are they the original bolts? The flexplate bolts have a thin head. A regular size bolt head will hit if i remember correct.
