ford 460 problems

Hi I've got a '79 Ford Bronco with a 460. :) It ran great until about 2 months ago...then both carb floats sank at the same time..then the fuel pump cracked and pumped fuel directly into the crakcase.(not good) So I put new p1ugs, wires, fuel pump, and have the carb adjusted right. It ran great for a week or two and then it ran bad in the morning and better in the afternoon. But now it always misses on #2 + #3?? cylinders always the same cylinders too. Compression is 120 turning over but if I let it run and check the compression its only at 30-35. Someone out there has to have some idea I am so lost. Any ideas will be appreciated.
