Yes, the heats inks can contact the board, as there is solder mask over the traces to prevent contact. Letting the heats inks rest on the pc board will also stabilize them a bit.

Pulling on the MJE5731A's shouldn't hurt them unless you can see broken leads, if any of the legs have slipped out, I would closely inspect all of your solder joints.

To help those giving you assistance, just post the voltages that are out of spec.  To keep them from having to search back and fourth in the manual also post the expected.  This will save time and bandwidth.  So something like this:

Expected 100V, Measured 125V
