i removed the tranny yoke on my '81 automatic. while under there i could "wiggle" the output shaft from the tranny. is this normal to have some movement of this shaft?

Yes, any movement 1/64 of an inch or less from center is within spec. That's just the slop in your output shaft bearing. excessive play will result in a wobble under acceleration, or a low pitched resonance at cruise speeds.

thanks!! can i fix this easily? or, would i need to remove the tranny to do so? can it be done with just removing the tail section?
