yikes! maybe the crankcase ventilator on the back the motor is plugged too? i guess a zero in one of tthe cylinders could mean a bent or bad valve tho, that aint good... be a cool motor tho when you rebuild it!

How did you do a comp. test on it after sitting 34 yrs? After that long, a rebuild is sort of a gimmie even without testing it.
