Just when you think you might have these bombardiers kind of figured out a tag like this pops up.
Either way, nice machine ,I'd be all over that like a fat kid on a Smartie.

Gee that's a classic, but I'm afraid I can't answer any of your questions.

Stuck valves or blown head gasket seems likely. Pulling the head off is probably in your future.

I would pull the head to see if any valves were stuck and cyl condition . Remove the side covers if you want , but I would not remove the exhaust/ intake unless the gasket is blown, ( they don't like to be disturbed)
Just my opinion. Keep the pics coming

ÖÖ. so your ''dry'' test wasn't very encouraging, bummer. so you can do a ''wet'' compression test. what that will tell you is if it's valves or piston/rings/cyls. related. basically you wet the cyls. , one at a time , with some oil . I like to run the piston down to the bottom of it's travel , take a ''squirt'' oil can , or so, and lube the inner cyl. then rotate the engine over a few revolutions by hand, at first. to work the oil up & down & all around. then cover spark plug hole with shop rag, spin engine over with the starter , to expel the excess oil . you don't want excessive oil in cyls., ''hydro-static '' lockup occurs. hard on starter, rods, rings, crank, etc. a few squirts is good, don't fill the cyl. with oil, too much , alittle goes along ways. so install tester . bump it over a few short rotations, to make sure no lock up. then crank it . compare psi tests to each other . if pressures go up; then rings/pistons/cyls. are worn severely. if pressures don't change, then most likely valve related, or a headgasket issue. also with the wet test; if it is a headgasket issue, sometimes you will see oil ''mist'' come out of an adjacent spark plug hole , while testing another. also key is a good starter, battery , charger hooked up , for proper rotation rpm .

Probably exhaust valves stuck open , those old chrysler,Dodge flatheads are famous for that!! i had issues with three different flatheads doing that. I finally took all the exhaust valves out and opened up the guides a few thousands ,no problems since. Don

Will post the NAPA number for you when I get home. The 251 gasket is slightly longer than the 230 gasket at the water pump end.
