I would like to eliminate as many of those as possible, so that I can confidently pull the trans knowing it needed rebuilt.

Thank you all for your input.
When you pulled the speed sensor, was there any metal shaving at the tip? If there was metal shaving one of the clutch drums have cracked or disintegrated. The other common problem with a ZF 5hp24 is the o-rings that goes bad which will allow leakage of ATF from building up the fluid pressure and the speed sensor will note that the difference in the trans speed versus engine speed and slam the trans to engage to prevent the trans from destroying itself.
