No compression Briggs 8HP

Briggs OHV 8HP 15A114 0342 E1

Was using blowing snow, worked well for a few hours and then starting stalling almost like starving for gas. was sure it was a carb issue but upon checking compression found it would go to 20lbs. and then fall to zero. Pulled valve cover both valves moving and push rods in place. Looking for most likely causes and troubleshooting ideas.

Thanks !

With good movement at the valves and no sudden oil burning and the intake/exhaust clear, I would look at the head gasket.
