Alright, I managed to get the compression test done. Here are the results. I tested each cylinder twice. Engine had been running for roughly 10 min before the test so it had warmed up substantially.

Cyl# 1: 150, 150
Cyl# 2: 27, 27
Cyl# 3: 150, 150
Cyl# 4: 150, 150

Where to from here? What could the causes be of that low of compression in 1 cylinder but misfiring in 2? Head gasket? Piston rings/ring lands? Valves staying open?

I have a Ver.8 long block sitting in another bugeye chassis but I don't really have a clue as to it's condition.

This kinda sucks though lol.

Thank you for the suggestion.
