You have a cylinder that is not firing. Check plug, coil and plug wire and see what happens from there.

so don't check plug wire, coil, or plug check before doing a compression test?:headscratch


Well, since you have to pull the plug to do a compression test....might as well have a look at it :lol

And just to add one more possibility, it could also be the carb. Either because of plugged jets or flooding (see fouled plug). Anyways, definitely not firing on that cylinder.
