I guess the ignition coil could be breaking down or something but its not like its a weak spark. It's either crazy mega fat and blindingly bright, or nothing. When you go to kick these over with the plug out checking spark, it sparks quite rapidly, no? Mine kinda just every once in a while sparks, you know?
The results of your compression test concern me!

At the bottom, read the special note. Not able to pull up any info for the DT400, but your compression sounds low and may be a part of your issue.
