Beautiful Downtown Roebuck Ont.
Just reread your last post. The pilot MIGHT be a little longer if they used an aftermarket shaft when they rebuilt it.

The transmission itself might not have been 100% centered in the bellhouseing the first time you installed it but now after you loosened everything up to install the washers, it relaxed into position.

Suggestion:

Remove the washers, release the clutch to tighten up the trans bolts so it centers up nice and see if it shifts cleaner now.

If it's less work to just pull the trans, drive the pilot bushing in a little further if it will go to eliminate that it might be dragging on the shoulder of the pilot (not likely but you never know...) and grind .080" off the end of the input shaft.

If you do pull the trans, compare the pilot on the new one to the old one.

No shafts or gears were replaced. But you make a good point. I will try this after a few miles.
