Compression test results

I need some help on what to do next. It has a Carter-Weber that I can get a rebuild kit for (from Advanced Auto Parts). I have no experience with that, but life is for learning. Everything but wires have been replaced on the ignition side. Wires were new 18 months ago.

From the black it could be oil or gas, the smell should let you know. could be water in the lines... now i'm just reaching for straws

Does fuel pump pressure have anything to do with start up?

P.S. you can check fuel pressure with a fuel pressure gauge to verify that it is the fuel pump.

The carb rebuild kit turns out to be expensive $200 plus from the factory. The Advance folks were talking about a Hitachi kit. I can't lay out that kind of money with knowing what the problem is. If I found a used Hitachi and manifold, that would fit my car right? Then later I could upgrade to a Weber.
$31 for a fuel pump is different.
There must be an answer to why this sucker starts warm but not cold.
I will do a cold compression test and see what that says. I will put on a new fuel pump and another new filter. But I am not getting that Ah Hah! feeling at all.

Anyway, best luck!
