Sounds like you have a hole in a piston .

Good Luck ----------------Hotwrench

You're going to have to pull the head at a minimum. Maybe that hole in the piston is brought on by a dropped valve.

With an engine this old it could be anything. One thing it really is though is a teardown job. Until you pull it apart, it's all guesswork.

If you are hoping to pour a can of Motor Honey or something into it, you are dreaming. Get your tools or checkbook out.
