Notes: the number stated, WN- 8647', should read, 'WN1 8647' - the WN1 designates the standard military model of the Austin Champ; misfire, with these compression readings I would not have thought they would cause a misfire, I would do checks of: spark plugs, contact breakers (points), condenser (always replace the condenser if its history is not known), plug leads, connections to the coil etc., carburettor, etc. A roll cage is fitted.
