Good news. I pulled the transmission and the problem was the bolts that I used. The shoulder on the bolt was too long which didn't allow the pressure plate to evenly seat. I put on thick washers and the problem is solved. The car is back together and I've verified that everything is working as it should.

Nothing sucks more than to have everything together and you have to pull the trans or lift the engine out just to fix some issue like dropping something or the oil shaft into the oil pan. I've had to do that... twice.

Yeah, you know the struggle is real for sure. Considering the amount of real world experience I have with all of this, I'm actually surprised I've gotten this far without significant problems.
