I Know this is late as hell but just as an interest of helping others, which i've become sort of obsessed with this site lately, the solution, albiet an abstract one:

The main harness coming from the key got pinched between the frame and the radiator during engine reinstall. the result is the ground wire coming from the key got cut through eventually and that was the culprit. fixed the ground wire and all was good. it seems, the computer gets its ground from the key, and without that ground the ignition circuit will not work.

I hope we all learn something from this experience. I know i did.
