"Machine shop said the pickup is welded and ensures me the pickup height is correct."

Not really, it is a means of being sure the pickup doesn't leak air at the join to the pump and that it doesn't loosen in the pomp bore and move around. The height from the bottom of the pan is established by measurement of the assembly, hopefully done before any welding and then welded properly. Then there is the issue of weld heat to the pump housing, if left in during welding often the relief valve spring is damaged by the heat. The heat can also distort the casting.

Welding on the pump is not all that simple of a thing to do, it's easy to perform more damage than good.
