I have a 1972 Oldsmobile. 350 motor. Been sitting for a few years. Has little to no compression. Any ideas on how to build the compression? I have put oil in the cylinders.

There is a lot more to it than that. The valves may be sticking in the guides and not seating. You need someone to disassemble it for you and inspect it.
