Ok new plugs ,plug wires ,coil, dist cap, rotor, points condensor and distributor shaft.
Timed with multimeter 1/4 inch from distributor mount hole . Compression all at 90 or above.
Still a miss and I'm at a loss . Took carb apart also looks good .It's a mystery any ideas?

With my limited experience I would start by isolating which cylinder is missing with a spark tester or if you don't have one pull one spark plug wire at a time. I had a miss on my 8N once and it was as simple as not having one wire not pushed into the distributor cap far enough. I saw a great video on these early N's. Using non resistor type spark plugs, setting the spark plug gaps and points smaller and setting timing using a test light rather than the 1/4" measure is about all I remember.

Thanks

Number 1 cylinder is reference for timing.

Rev engine to 1000 rpms, pull 1 spark plug wire at a time, you should hear and see rpms drop.

If not, that's the dead cylinder.
