My first thought after reading the title was fuel issues. Could be a plugged screen in the tank. I would suggest biocide to verify good fuel....also fuel and air filters if you have not done that yet.

As far as a compression test not being decisive I disagree.

I also predict your compression test will show this engine is mechanically sound.

Good luck!
