Robert you may be ok but running a motor with a stuck ring usually results in damage.Inspect the cylinders using a bore scope/inspection camera or you can remove the transfer port and exhaust covers.
Bent or broken reeds will result in low compression as will bad seals.Not familiar with mercosil blocks but the older mercs could be over-heated piston and rings fried but the hard chrome lining would be easily cleaned up with a scotch-brite pad or a quick hone new piston and rings and last another few thousand hours. These blind-bore motors are expensive to rebuild if needing oversize pistons and your money is better spent on another motor.mw
