Certainly if there is a metal on metal issue...stop. otherwise.

The problem with that is the engine won't start yet due to the extremely low compression issue. Hasn't ever been run since the years-ago rebuild. I do believe he's on the right track and following a logical troubleshooting sequence. It's just being obstinate like these things test us!
