90 240sc tranny shifting late in fwd only after visit to mech

greetings all wetheads, hope your summer is progressing along nicely.

I had an issue with a seized steering line, mech freed it up said he had to heat ti to loosen it up. which worries me- but he said it didnt need anything new. ok fine. but now it is shifting late, he is on vacation and im wanting to put it in the water again this weekend. fluid level looks good, looks fresh actually.
reverse works as normal. engages at the same point as before.
but fwd doesnt engage until very very late, engine is fairly well wound up before it will catch. seems to get better when ive worked it a good bit.- i know that sounds odd.

no bad smells, no other issues of note.

any ideas or thought appreciated. and if you know of a thread that covers this pls let me know, i drilled through several posts, most were on leaking seals.
