Compression could be anywhere from 80 to 120 psi, with around 100 being the norm. Depends on the condition of the engine. I would think it should still run at 60, but the oil in the cylinder trick will boost it up. Once the engine is running and everything is lubricated and the piston rings get reseated, I think you'll find the pressure up to at least 80 psi. Don't worry to much about the pressures. If it starts and runs good, and doesn't emit blue smoke from burning oil (which it may for a little while until the rings reseat), then you're golden.
