Are you sure its a manual ECU? I would hazard a guess that the interlock that prevents you from starting in Drive etc not bypassed. Try putting the old ECU back in and removing the selector switch from the old box and plugging that in (make sure park is selected). You can use an Auto ecu by doing this or adding a resistor in place of the selector and adding in another single resistor to fool the ECU into thinking the gearbox temp is fine, even though its sitting in your shed.

Yeah, first make sure the orange/black wire of the starter relay is earthed.
In the manual EF/EL's, you can plug an auto ECU straight in and they should start, with the usual thermos roaring and high idle(around 1200 RPM), but for testing this is bearable. In yours, you can do same with your old auto ECU, should start but will have just the high idle.
