Made some progress recently.. Found a bad reference sensor which was nice to discover and I found that the engine was rotating counterclockwise when I was trying to start the engine. I removed the starter and saw that there is an arrow on it that seemingly points counterclockwise. I'm thinking that the starter is not original to the car as it spins the engine counterclockwise. I got a new starter on order and it will be here in the morning. I also will order a new reference sensor as well as a speed sensor, just to make sure both are new. Hoping to hear the engine run once those are in.
