I'm sure you've checked a bunch of things already but I'd be looking at:

1. The points removal/electronic ignition conversion, is that wired up correctly with the correct coil/ballast for the application for the unit.   

2. Vacuum lines for the carb, are they connected to the correct places to get advance. As well as all the other ports on the inlet, etc. etc. 

3. Comp testing should be done at WOT, not sure if it has by those figures. As Phil says, they're low.  Probably too low.

 

 

Yeah I did em on a cold motor because I couldnt get it going.

those compression numbers are pretty low (although they are relatively even) - combined with smoking issue it sounds like your rings are defective and it's perhaps letting too much oil into combustion chamber.

I think the problem was breather hoses on block looped hence the gasket blow out/oil past rings

Good luck on the wiring stuff mate!  Good to know the motor's running well now though.

Took it for another hoon tonight with the new gearbox mount ohh man so good. Got the up to 60 km on street few hard braking sessions and all working well. worked a treat that liquid polyurethane.

Hey mate,

 

I really enjoyed following the progress on this. You have put a lot of love into the old girl.

 

I have 2 of these. One is running nicely and I'm painting it a panel at a time. The other one I just picked up but has major damage to one side of it that is going to push my limited bodywork skills to the limit. Really cool to see someone dealing with a lot of the same issues I've had.

Yep - she looks great! Making me think that maybe I should paint one of mine black.

Both drivers side doors and the b pillar are smashed in. Luckily I have access to a spare car (not my other one) that I can go and take some cuts from. The doors on the spare are pretty rusty, so I'll have to weld some patches in on those too. Gonna be a learning experience for sure!
