I know your very mechanically inclined and not trying to offend you.
Compresses air into the system is only one obvious sign of a blown HG between the CYL and a water jacket. It could still be blown elsewhere. Maybe start it and remove the oil cap. See if your getting excessive pressure into the crank case? I know it's not typical to have loss of compression and oil in the hole at the same time but if it was a typical problem I don't think you'd be on here for input from others.

Is ok, I am not offend. Two heads is better then one. I did that and no excessive pressure, I just replace ccv about a month ago, when she started smoking.
