Bruce asked if it is 6V or 12V and if it is a front mount or side mount distributor so helpful to tell us this up front. Your compression is on teh weak end but I think your problem is fuel and/or spark. The proper fuel test is to see if gas flows at freely at about 1 pint in two minutes. Test at drain plug on carb and through the fuel line to carb. If OK, leave it alone and move on to the electrical system, most likely your true root case problem. A weak or dead battery would be the first place to look. Get it to a shop and test, it is free. A basic trickle charger won't do squat if won't hold a charge. When he's testing, go through the wiring. This is where we need to know the 6v/12v, front mount or side mount info in order to proceed beyond.
