The ovaling is because there was a very slight bolt pattern difference between the early 5.2 and 5.9 torque convertors, and it's a heck of a lot easier and cheaper to oval a hole than to buy an early 5.9 torque convertor for a 46RH.
Yep. Sorry if I misunderstood you. So you modified a symmetric weighted flexplate to bolt up to an offset torque converter. To clarify...

All Chrysler switched from offset to symmetric torque converter/flexplate around '96.
'93 -early '95 5.2 ZJ -> offset torque converter/flexplate
late '95 - '98 5.2, '98 5.9 ZJ -> symmetric torque converter/flexplate
5.9 flexplates do not interchange with 5.2 flexplates because of balancing

No worries, I'd say you've probably got that figured out.
