Are perhaps some original 31-year old electronic components weakened to fail in heat? I have thought at this possibility as well.
My first question is what electronic control module are you referring to? As a general rule carbed engines don't have electronic control modules, there are exceptions to that rule, but as far as I know the Swifts were not amongst them.
My second question is does that Chilton match the vehicle you're working on?
The fact that there is a strong smell of fuel underhood after the restart attempts does not suggest to me, that the fuel system is "in order", and coupled with it not running on starter fluid suggests that the engine is in fact flooded.
My third question is what market was that Swift built for - I do have some documentation for the 1.3 Swift of that era as I did own one, with a two barrel carb, and no electronic control module.
