heh, heh... yeah as you've learned, swapping parts is the easy part. It's the alignment and adjustments of those parts that's 95% of the difference between working telepathically and not working at all. If I was to start with a project like yours, I would've stripped the bike completely bare and checked the facing of the headtube & BB as well as the alignment of all the dropouts and derailleur-hanger. That's like 50% of getting a working configuration right there.

Good luck!
