Back to basics. Fuel, spark, compression, and spark timing. Compression readings are good, and hard to doubt. It's carbureted, so it's hard to have only two cyl's run and be a carburetion problem. That leaves spark and spark timing.
Is the distributor good? No bent rotor shaft, or oil leaking into it? Cap is on straight? I once had a misfire develop because the cap was on tilted.
