Cleaned earth strap and mount , gonna check all lines and wiring the weekend, annoying when a simple gearbox change causes this hassle:(

Probably a dumb question but did you check all of the plug leads? 

When I refitted my gearbox I was leaning over on the engine to fit the selector cables and had dislodged a plug lead into the dizzy cap which wasn't overly apparent until I stated the car and had a similar running issue.
