380 miss

'84 380 SL misses on #2, right side at all times. Compression on all cylinders is approx 130. Plug and wire have been switched with others with no change. New fuel distributor and injectors. Plug is wet with fuel after running. Plug connected to wire and laid on cam cover fires.

What am I not seeing?

If it's getting fuel and it's getting spark, then air is the only thing left. If it's not getting air, perhaps something is wrong with the valve(s) for that cylinder? Have you popped off the valve cover to see if anything is visually wrong with the valves of that cylinder?

Dad bought it new, now I own it.

The valves looks okay. Although there is some visible wear on the camshaft, it is the same on all cylinders. The valves for #2 are definitely opening.
