For max effort work should i work up to a 1 rep max or a 3 rep max? Right now i'm working up to a set or 2-5 reps. Has anyone seen good strength gains with max singles?

Depends on your goal. Heavy singles are good, but heavy triples can work well too. Strength gains will depend on how much adaptation you encourage to occur. So doing several sets of singles will do wonders for strength...... for singles. Is that your goal; to be able to compete in a strength meet?
If you do decide to do goodmornings, just make sure you're doing the movement with your hips and not your back.
i would stick with the singles, always trying for a PR. another tip is that you may actually be pulling too much, try bringing up your lockout strength with other special excersises, glute-hams, pull thrus, reverse hypers, back extensions. the hardest way to get stronger deadlifting is to deadlift all the time.
oh yeah and box squats. real low box squats. get good at those and youll blast through sticking points cause of the explosiveness and speed you build off a low box.
