Default Jiffy Ice Auger

Anyone know what compression should be on a OLD jiffy model 30 ice auger?

we got it for free i cleaned the carb once and it runs good on the bench at the shop. got home and it wil semistart rev up once and shut off then wont start again, will spit if the devil starting fluid is fed a small shot to it but thats it.
almost seems flodded but the plug doesnt come out real wet (did replace plug)
im thinking either low compression or maybe it needs a carb rebuild (float needle seat) but not sure yet. still need to dig in. im also going to put a fuel shit off and a inline filter between the tank and the carb.
Reppin' NY!!
