New tranny & now won't start

My tranny had 196,000 + miles on it and at the start of a group wheeling day it decided to go to that jeep tranny graveyard in the sky. So after an hour and a half wrecker tow home the mechanic told me the tranny was toast. So I bought a new transmission and they installed it. They said it started for the test run and had no problems, but when they tried to start it to move it back out of the garage it wouldn't start.
The mechanic said he checked everything he could think of and he thinks it all stems back to the computer. He said there is battery voltage going into the computer but only .3 volts coming back out. To make it even worse he said they stopped making the computer I need in 2003, he said it ends in 338AC. So 1st, does anyone have one that works laying around they want to get rid of.
2nd does anyone have any other ideas, I saw the thread "won't start" and am going to run all those ideas by him, mine is a 97 also automatic 4.0.
3rd is it possible he could have done something while installing the new tranny to screw up my computer?
I'm open to any suggestion, short of selling my soul, to bring my baby back to life. Although I might consider selling my soul...if the price is right.

Mechanics nightmare. Fix the initial customer complaint, and another more serious one develops after, and try to convince the customer that "It's not our fault".

If anything, try to find a known good one to at least test with to see if that (ECM) is the problem. I generally go back to the last repair that was done to make sure that nothing got missed or damaged.
