Its too old to be affected by stored memory loss issues like the new cars that have to keep a power hook up even while installing a new battery so I doubt that it. Must be whatever it was causing the issue before or something new. You going to have to confirm which or what does not work, No fuel or no spark? Bad fuses? Grounds ect?

That's not good, when the battery cable is removed with the engine running it causes a voltage spike that fries electronics, so now you need to find out what the voltage spike ruined. A word of warning this can get expensive really fast. I has a customer in my shop that removed a battery cable on his car with it running and it cost him 1500 bucks to replace all the electronics when he removed the cable.
