Everybody but number 3 looks pretty OK, either the plug doesn't fire, bad ignition wire, bad cap, that injector or check valve is dribbling, defective spark plug, if this has a flat tappet cam I'd suspect a wiped lobe/lifter, bad guide letting a lot of oil down the stem, a valve that leaks past the seat.

Before I spent hard cash, I run a compression check. While I strongly would suspect the problem is with the injection for that cylinder, I'd stll run through the cheap and easy inspections first, I hate spending big bucks on parts only to find it was something else.
