Hello rasmataz; no compression @ #3 & rusty brown plug led us to. After removing the head we saw swirling scars on piston surface, no debris evident, and no resistance. Valves appear fine, as do all remaining components of the top end. Conclusion: piston not connected > spun bearing or broken rod. We'll pull the engine & disassemble bottom end tomorrow, if all goes well. Your input on what we have done, concluded, and are planning will be both appreciated and valued. Thanks again.
