Hi my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answer. No compression at all ?. Make sure it's not the tester , and next remove the spark plug and use a long screw driver and put it tin the spark plug hole and as the motor turns over the piston should push the screw driver out if neither one do it sounds like broken connecting rods
