I would suggest dropping the oil pan to clean out sediment before running the engine up to operating temperature.
Cranking and running the engine for 5-10 minutes doesn't evaporate moisture from the oil, so it has been accumulating for 25 years making goop in the pan.

ZM, the assembly line safety man probably caught him bumping the crankcase with his hand and made him switch to a tap from the mallet. I did notice that the tap was very precise in force and direction. lol

Since aluminum (the trans case) expands (the case gets longer) at a much faster rate as temperature rises than steel shafts, the end float increases as the temperature of the transmission goes up. So its not your shim job!
