Loss of ignition "fire"

This "Indie" is disabled and on another net forum:

Anything anyone can do to help him counts for Gold Stars.

Loss off ignition fire

The car is a greymarket 230E, VIN 1240231B840778, Eng #10298 2 10 223 355. The car came from Belize(local professor). I ran an import repair shop for 34 yrs. before becoming disabled. I agreed to help him get it on the road. An idiot in Belize started pulling relays and jumping wires, etc., because the pump went out. He is out of the country all the time, so he was able to get the correct parts. Got an eng. comp. wiring harness, control box (ECM), fuel pump, and the normal small parts. The dist. showed the pickup was bad so he picked up a used one....tested good at local shop. Got everything in and when it cranked, it ran beautiful for a few seconds and it just lost "fire" again. My problem is, e weeks ago, while out of town, someone broke into my little shop, after killing my dog and stold everything, even all my shop manuals(back to '63)but left some hand tools and an old VOM that had no leads. Does anyone have the testing procedure using a VOM and/or an engine compartment wiring diagram? I believe a US 190E might be comparable, as the engines are the same. Maybe a URL that does?
I would greatly appreciate the help.
