Did you hear any lower end knocking? A really bad rod bearing could lower the compression result. How much I am not sure and it would have to be a pretty bad bearing to do so.

Might hold together with the cylinder not firing. Cylinder firing the rod is gone in a situation as bad as that. Usually the number one rod lets go on the four cylinder 616 before compression is lost.

Why such a crazy thought? Adding oil to the cylinder gave no upside at all. You had a hundred pound compression with or without it.
