4.3 Has Me WHIPPED!

Bought a truck the other day from a man who said it wouldn't start.Ran a compression check,no compression on #3,the other 5 were at 195.Pulled the valve cover and all 3 intake rocker studs were pulled out of the head.Drifted these back into place and adjusted the valves.It started but ran real rough,wouldn't idle.Ran another compression check,read same as the first one.I suspected a holed piston or bent valves.Pulled the head,no bent valves and a good piston that goes up and down.I sure could use some help here.Dale
