Homelite 26cc leaf blower

How many pounds of compression should a 26 cc homelite gas blower have? Mine has about 85psi but it will not fire. I have good spark and manually put fuel in the cylinder, but it still will not pop.

85 is low, but it might be enough to start under the right conditions. Drop a few drops of motor oil along with the gas in the spark plug hole and see if it starts. If so, compression is the issue.
