Thread-topic: [TR] Compression TR3A
Who did the compression test?  Did the person do it dry first, and then with a 
little oil in the cylinders?  What was the condition of the plug from #4?  When 
did the engine last have a valve job?  If #4 really has 0 compression, then 
something catastrophic may have occurred, so I am not sure that I would drive 
it.  At the minimum I would remove the head to see what is going on in #4.
