Strikes me as odd that the guy who did the previous work didn’t mention anything, you might think he would want to cover himself at least.

Indeed it is. He mentioned that there were some signs of an old issue with the trans but nothing to worry about, but that's all. he never mentioned anything about signs of a case repair.

Forgot to answer the question about the tower bolt, yes it was done up tight so don't think the tower has been moving at all.
