49 Hopefully you have a friend that has a compression tester.
There are 2 basic types. A hand held gauge that you press into the spark plug hole and turn the motor over.
The better of the 2 is one that threads right into your spark plug hole. I got mine at sears.
Crank motor over with wide open throttle till gauge peaks.
Normal reading would be approx 120.
Under 90/100 is bad.
Then you would need to disassemble the top end and have your cylinder bored to a new piston.
There is a possibility that you have a blown head/base gasket but the fact that it's running makes me believe that they are not the problem.
