Installed new wire set today. No improvement.

So my mechanic friend thought it could be a stuck intake valve (debunked theory.) But couldn't it also be an exhaust port that's clogged with carbon?

Is that a thing; an exhaust port clogged with carbon?

I find it highly unlikely, but then highly unlikely shit happens

I've been searching it. Seems to be common with marine engines.

re read this whole thing and I would:

replace coil and all wires.

replace rotor dizzy with electric dizzy.

fairly cheap and simple to do, except I would get an auto leccy to replace coil and wires.
