i checked compression this week and the cylinder closest to the bulkhead had 0 compression so fink i have head gasket gone and a valve burnt out so hope to get car home in next few days and start stripping down. but there is all so a lot of blue smoke coming out of the oil breather like a a steam train lol so may have other prolems like piston ring gone or sumthing.
