I was in a large Workhorse shop a few years back for minor maintenance. Next to the stall my rig was in was a large class A and they were replacing a blown gas engine. It was a major project. The pros had removed the grill and the front wheels were about 36" off the floor. They disconnected everything, pulled the steering and cross member reached in with a long arbor jack, pulled the engine a few inches forward, then dropped it to the floor. Then pulled it out. Boy it was a HUGE mess, parts, wires, plastic, parts everywhere. It looked like a NASA project. Seems like they said the bill was going to run $10K

Best of luck if you take it on

With the compression readings you obtained and the bent spark plug ground electrode I would suspect a piston with a hole in it. I suggest obtaining/borrowing a borroscope to look into the cylinder through the spark plug hole. If replacement is needed due to cylinder wall damage , I would pull engine in pieces. The only part of this situation I can't explain is a forced neutral of trans.
