I've also experienced the same symptoms with a broken rocker arm and or a 
jammed pushrod - anything that holds a valve open will sound really bad. but 
is usually an easy, inexpensive fix. My 73 camaro with  a hipo cam that had 
too much lift for the stock valve train broke 4 rockers on different

	I would double check those lifters that you installed.  It may be 
that one of the lifters in the bad cylinder is not allowing the valve to 
close completely, which would cause your low compression.  Since that was 
done recently, IMHO the lifters are highly suspect.

	Good luck, I hope to see you out here soon.
