So, after playing around in a red hot car i eliminated the gearbox sensor, i did this by putting another set of clocks in the car and the speedo worked perfectly.
I was thinking need new clocks, then i decided to put the other clocks back in just to see what they did, oddly enough the speedo now behaves and is steady, this leads me to think that while putting the clocks back in i somehow managed to disturb the speedo plug (as we all know they can be awkward to get back in sometimes) so now it's wait and see how it goes.
