It's not just the Lorentz factor that you need to use to find correct solutions, it's the Lorentz Transformation that will link them together mathematically.

The muon lifetime measurements are a good way of seeing the relationship. You could try #27 in this fairly recent thread: https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=679937

.....on the link between the effects of length contraction and time dilation, are they permutation of the same thing from different reference frames? How do they link together mathematically?

I'd agree they are permutations of an interval.

length / time = speed

speed is limited, the limited speed is invariant. Lower speeds are not invariant.
