Sorry to hear about your troubles. I dont know anything about your car. SO here is my try at it. Did that year have the Clutch stop, were as you have to push in the clutch to start the car. Maybe that switch/sensor is detached or misbehaving after clutch change out?

It turns over so I'm thinking it has to do with the fuel or spark. I'm not sure witch. I don't know it I mentioned that the radio is not currently in it I don't know if that makes a difference.
