I am confused: the first two sentences use the past tense, one with juste au cas oû, the other au cas oû but your explanation only talks about the

conditional tense and not why these first two sentences are different.

The past tense occurs in the main clause, the conditional is always used in the subordinate clause started by au cas où. 

I'm not sure if that answers your question.
