Yup, 60 too low. A mechanic would then either pressurize the cooling system, or do a wet test on the low cylinders to help in the diagnoses.

And ask you if you had any coolant loss, and probably look at the oil for signs of coolant.

No it won't run with those compression readings. Sounds like a jumped timing chain/belt. HTH. -Jim
