The seals, although important for operation, have little to do with compression. I would look at the piston, rings, and cylinder walls. Only takes a few minutes and tells a lot. Might be bearing gone and took the top end with it. Not costly to repair but sometimes better to just pick up a whole new engine for $75 and use old for parts.
