do you have an air compressor? If you do, adapt the air compressor to the compression tester hose.
Bring #1 to TDC. Trans in gear E brake on. Pressurize the cylinder.
Listen at the carb, if you hear air bad intake valve, listen to the exhaust, if you hear air, bad exhaust valve. Listen at the oil filler cap, if you hear air, holed piston.
you can google "leak down test" for more detail.

Sorry, just saw you've got a spare head....taking the old one off will provide a definitive answer...hope it's something simple.  Good luck
