I think the rings would have to be REAL bad to not let the engine at least POP a little. Perhaps GONE and laying in the lower case. Otherwise it should at least ACT like it wants to start and go pop pop once in a while. I guess yer gonna hafta pull the cylinder and check. or just do a compression test.
