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
