Default Need help identifying engine

I recently acquired a used Top Flite Cessna 310. The gentleman I bought it from didn't seem to know an awful lot about the engines on it. The only markings I see are "Made in the USA", and the letter "K". I'm guessing that it is a K&B. I can't seem to find anywhere what size it is. I pulled the muffler, and it looks to be a ringed engine. Any of you guys know what I have, or where the size might be located?? It is still mounted to the plane, but I feel sure I've looked everywhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also, the compression on one engine seems less than the other.Is this normal for a ringed engine? I have not run either engine yet.
