No Start problems
OK, I am assuming you have a D-jet system with electric injectors that look very much like a modern EFI system but the brain is triggered by the extra sets of points in the distributor.
You mention to start with that noid lights aren't triggered with engine cranking. Before you go too much farther you need to see if the ecu is getting power and if so, then you need to verify the connections to the trigger points sets (not the ignition points SET) and then trip them manually with the system powered and see if you get noil light trips. Temp sensor 1, 2, warm up valve, won't prevent a start, the MPS (the fist sized manifold pressure sensor) can prevent running well but shouldn't prevent injector triggering. The TPS (throttle position sensor) should be also checked for connections but this won't prevent the injectors from firing. There is not a lot more to that system as for fuel delivery
Your ignition system is in a good way I assume?
If the car will fire (bump) with some starting spray shot down the throttle body then your ignition system is working, if not, then you need to see that you are getting fire...
all the best
900 for an ECU sounds high honestly, I'd check inside the unit and see if there are any burned connections at the board/component solder joints. couldn't hurt
