After that it got oil changes every 3K miles. 50K miles later I had to pull the pan to replace a leaky gasket. the pan was SPOTLESS.
ATF is very high detergent and will clean sludge

I don't think the ATF will do any harm...
The biggest fear of running high detergent stuff in old engines is that the detergents "will suddenly break-up all the gunk at once, which will then block-up oil passages, etc...."
You've already removed most of the crud, so the ATF is certainly worth a try...
