With the key in run your fuel injector connector should have power on one wire and a ground supplied by the ECM (Engine Control Module) on the other wire while cranking. You need to determine if there is power present, if not then you need to check the power source for the injectors. If you are not getting the ground from the ECM while cranking then you could possibly have an issue with the crankshaft sensor that the PCM uses to "trigger" the injectors. You could also have a wiring issue, ECM issue, security system issue, or another sensor causing a problem.

I hate to see you replacing good parts, more information would be helpful. If you don't have power to the injectors you may just have a faulty relay or possibly something else simple. Yes your crankshaft sensor is part of the distributor assembly.
I'm having this same problem with my 88 460. It was sitting there running and it just quit has any one found out what the problem was?
