Some things you might keep in mind for "next time."
I'm not clear if this system was ever working? You seem to have said in your last post that you were converting from points to electronic?
MAKE SURE that the module you had was FOUR terminal --with a 2 pin resistor--read my other post -- A 5 pin box MUST use a 4 pin resistor
You can NOT tell a 4 terminal ECU from a 5, as "at least some" have 5 pins but the 5th pin is not connected
Next, folks seem to have a lot of trouble with these breakerless distributors. One tune-up guy indicated he replaces a fair amount of "seemingly good" pickup coils, and speculation was that some may be losing magnetism
You are correct that "ignition run" (ign1) goes dead during crank. This is only an issue if 1--you are starting the engine by jumpering the start relay, as you then have power through the resistor
2--if there is something wrong in the wiring/ switch
3--if the brown bypass circuit (ign2) did not get hooked up.
If you Google around, there are a fair number of people--including me--who have adapted a GM HEI module
These are VERY easy to hook up, just 4 connections, and no resistor needed
I first played with one of these on my Toyota powered Oliver/ Cletrac, and now run on on my Dart
