As a postscript I deducted the gearbox rebuild costs from my mechanics bill, paid the rest, and wrote to him saying why. I havent heard back in 4 weeks so I guess he has accepted his lot.
However........as I was driving home the night before last the car started to shake silently but very noticeably underneath me with my foot on the gas. The car is now back with the company that did the rebuild for my mechanic.
At this stage the best guess is that the drive shaft rollers have broken? The nearside shaft was replaced when the gearbox was rebuilt in December.Whether this means I need a third new gearbox/rebuild in 6 months remains to be seen!
