The surest and proven method of determining the compression of an engine is to administer a "leakage test" this involves intoducion of compressed air in to each cylinder on 'top dead centre' and measuring the % leakage of each. The test will also indicate where the compression is leaking to. Check the exhaust pipe for leaks from the exhaust valves, the air intake for the intake valve leakage and the radiator for the head gasket failure. Be sure to check the crankcase breather for ring leakge.If there are leaks you will hear the air escaping. A reading of 10% is fine and you may get away with up to 20% but any higher is not going to pass emission control standards.
Any automotive workshop can do this test fot you. You can also perform a sort of test using compressed air and a modified spark plug. A pressure regulator is required as too high a pressure will crank the engine over. Be careful!
