no start 1989 240, spark ok, tailpipe smells of fuel 200 1989

My 1989 manual gasoline 240 will crank with gusto, but not start. There appears to be a spark, and the tailpipe smells of gasoline after abou 20 seconds of cranking.

I tried disconnecting the Air Mass Meter during the cranking process. No success.

There is a spark going though #1 spark plug wire.

I have a 1989 automatic 240 I can swap parts with. Is the ECU the same on both vehicles? Rather, can they be interchanged?

This is truly a mystery!
