No start, timing?

Hi all.

I just picked up a 2001 350es. Kid let it go for nothing, needs a few minor things but it wouldn't start. It is getting spark, and fuel. I used a shot of starter fluid and it backfired. He said this past year it backfired often. He barely had any oil in it, like sad. It does have a bit of compression but not what it should. Not as much as my 2001 250 recon. Pulls over smooth. I'm thinking the timing is off. Thoughts?

Yeah, either the valve timing is off or the piston or rings or a valve is shot. You'll just have to do some investigative surgery I think.
