no compression means that a valve is stuck open / broken / or worn,, or piston rod is no longer connected ( broken ),,, or piston rings are totally worn out,, could also be a bad valve spring. start by removing the valve cover and inspect the valves on cylinder #1. if valves look intact then the next step is to remove the head,, at this point it should be very obvious what is wrong. could be a good time to re-build the motor at that point,, it is a great motor and it is worth re-building,,, it will give you years and years of service.

Bent valves would be number one cause. Check the timing. If you lost time, your valves are tapping the pistons causing the knock. When the valves tap the pistons they bend and don't close all the way, so the cylinders cant make compression.
