you need to start over with the timing process the valves are hitting the pistons because the cams are not in time rotate the pistons off tdc by about 90 degrees counterclockwise and reset the cams then turn the engine to tdc and put it together rotate by hand after installation to be sure it turns freely 2 full revolutions of the crank and all the marks should line back up

the compression pressures are on the low side. The indications are worn rings as the pressure readings come up when the ring seal is improved with the addition of oil. The bores will be worn in a taper and if the head was to come of there would be a noticeable lip where the top ring stops in the cylinder
rings and cylinders wear equally but rings suffer from a loss of tension, and an increased ring gap that allows more compression to escape to the sump
Do you need to do something about it--
if there is an oil consumption problem( smokey) then yes
If the economy is acceptable to you then --no --not immediately
What should you consider in making a decision----
1. good engines are available from japanese spares ( imported engines with less than 30.000klms on the engine for a fair price
2. consider what is termed a "short motor" which is the block,crank, pistons ,rings,oil pump and sump all new
What you should not consider is a quickie fix--set of rings and nothing else as this will cost you more in the long run.
