Glad it see it is working "better". As to your question, yes add a spacer between the new chainring and spider if the removed chainguard and a spacer were between the old chainring and spider.. It sounds like you increased the chainline (moved the chainring outward) by removing the guard and spacer. Ideally, for a single chainring, the chainring should "sit" in the middle of the cassette (see Sheldon Brown for a discussion how to measure chainline).
