    like a bad seal between piston rings and the cylinder wall, or piston damage. or a bad head gasket like you stated above

    If the gauge is accurate. Then the cylinders have lost compression due to possible broken piston ring(s), scored cylinder walls etc.

    You could pull the head shell off and look into the cylinder and visually inspect the piston and rings and the cylinder walls in each cylinder.

    You can also turn the motor by hand using the PTO on the back of the engine(might be under a plastic cover) and inspect the cylinder walls and ports.

    not really, the crank doesn't really affect compression directly, unless u had a broken con rod or something

    Not to my knowledge.

    Was it spitting out sludge or oil out back from the exhaust or was there oil collecting in the bottom end?

    Is your ski all stock or modified in any way?

    Or is this ski new to You and don't know the history of it?
