1984 944 cranks but wont start

Okay so the other day I was going to head to work, it was a pretty cold morning and my car wouldnt start. It will crank, but it will never roll over. I kept trying and trying which eventually killed my battery for some reason. Running the starter for about 10 seconds killed the battery entirely. The tach wouldnt bounce, my oil pressure jumped up to 5 bars, and my lights inside dimmed, as well my oil light wouldnt come on after trying the first time.

things Ive done to try and fix it.

Replaced fuel filter just because
Changed oil
Replaced oil filter
Checked fuel pressure on the fuel rail, 35 psi
took the distributor caps off to see if there was any moisture
tried finding the FPR (fuel pressure regulator) and couldnt find it
tried finding the reference sensors

So I guess Im asking is where the hell do i find the FPR and the reference sensors.
