I hope this doesn't indicate a head gasket issue. There is no foam or bubbles in the coolant, the exhaust doesn't smell like coolant, I am totally at a loss on this one. Please help. The last thing to do is to replace the thermostat I guess.

Compression tests are useless for head gasket checking....... in fact they are mostly useless in general except to identify a cylinder with a problem *in comparison* to other cylinders and as a general pass/fail check to see if an engine has enough compression to even run. They are highly dependant on too many factors to make their numbers "publishable" on this site or any other. The numbers cannot be compared to any other engine.
