recheck the grounds. the one that is on your tranny is actually very important. i had a simular issue to this before. that ground was what was wrong for me

I would recheck the crank angle sensor signal, it is possible that it has got damaged whilst removing / re-fitting the transmission, also check that there are no other trapped or damaged wires , easily done when fitting a transmission. If you have a power source and earth at the distributor the only thing missing is the 'firing signal' from the Crank angle sensor (T.D.C pick up). Do not keep spending out for parts needlessly, you could end up replacing the whole car before you find the fault.

see if you can take an ohm meter on the lines to your coil to see if it is screwed and if not you can check your ignitor module. I find that is what usually goes wrong.
