Thanks for the info. I am going to try some "engine restore" to try and get my compression up. I found another motor I may rebuild before this one gives out

If you’re able to do so, a leak down test can be very helpful in this scenario. You can probably use the hose or spark plug adapter to connect to an air compressor and position the #1 cylinder at TDC. You’ll be able to hear air leaking out and it will help you determine if your loss is at the valves or rings.
