Broken head stud symptoms.

I have low compression in number 5 cylinder, 3L 930. Suspect it is a burnt valve from lack of maintenance/valve clearances. Have not had the time to make a pressure tester yet. This would give me better clues if I could find the time......

Have started to wonder recently if a broken stud would give low compression... without the leak making significant noise when running or under load? I tend to think I would hear a leak of that sort?

Saving for a complete engine rebuild and my mind wonders when thinking about what I may find inside.

Anybody had real world symptoms of broken head studs they can share? I have searched with not much luck.
