40psi while outside of the tire 🤣 I guess OP succeeded in his/her destructive test case.

Teeth look fine. There's some wear but the more prominent grooves are the shift ramps. Give it a quick tune up and see how it rides. If you're the OCD type then you'll want new components anyway.

Yes most likely will need a new rear wheel. New BB to match your crank. 68mm shell BB, 24mm spindle crank. For the FD you can get a braze on adaptor clamp to fit a braze on FD around a seat tube.

Are you certain it's not just the various shift ramps on the cogs that give the illusion that it's not true? Perhaps the old 7sp cassette did not have very prominent shift ramps (if at all)?

I second the checking of the b screw. Confirm it's not preventing the rd from threading on flush, and also maybe back off a few turns so that there's less distance between the top pulley and the cogs.
