Check for a plugged converter if the fuel volume is good

I would still check backpressure or pull the O2 and see if it will start. Also check for water in the fuel.

Hmmm, sounds like the cat is plugged, or possibly a dirty fuel filter? Don't have any pissed off ex's do you? :/

Does it have a good blue spark to it and also does it ever backfire through the carb or exhaust?

Compression also sounds a little low. My 360 (149k) was around 160 psi for compression IIRC

yes those compression readings are way to low.Did you crank engine about 5 revolutions with tester on? Sounds like my truck when Cat was plugged .Its possible plugged cat could make compression low by restricting engine flow... not enough air can get in less air to compress ...low reading(I think). at the time of cat the other problem was crankshaft position sensor located on front of engine I think I had damaged it or knocked ot out of position while working on something else.
