The important thing isn't the actual numbers, but the variance between cylinders.The 140 and 119 kinda scare me, but I wouldn't think it's low enough to stop the car from getting where you're going.Far more important is the condition of the bearings and timing chain and tensioners.But getting back to the compression check, it seems to me that you may have bad valve sealing.The way to test this for sure is to pour a little gear oil in the cylinders and re check the compression.If the results get better, then the rings are going.If not, it's the valves. And P.S.: if it makes you feel any better, I have 2 rearends ,a fender, a transmission and front seats to a car in my front porch!You're not a *******(well, at least I don't consider myself one),just spacially challenged!:p
