I've heard repeatedly that a special tool is required to put a certain amount of flex on the differential case (to adjust the shims? I don't know why...) when installing the differential into it. This guy didn't do that as far as I can tell. Is he headed for problems?

I don't think that applies to Dana differentials. I have seen illustrations of that being done though. Maybe GM products?

at least that is true for 44's 60's, and 70's. I have the tool and have done a Dana 60 and Dana 70 with it. The bearing preload is set by shims as I recall and spreading the case is the recommended way to get them in properly. You should find the procedure in a shop manual, I believe I used the 70 Dodge Truck shop manual as that's what I was working on. Tool is not really that expensive if you consider what could happen if you mess it up. My tool and all my differential parts came from Randy's ring and pinion.
