Your gut is wise. It sounds like you may have broken a ring / piston. First thing you need to do is check compression. It should be around 120 psi or so unless you happen to have an '82 which was more like 90 - 100 psi.

If you don't have good compression you have a new top end in your future.

what he said. if you don't have a compression gauge handy you can also pull the carb off and look into the intake at one side of the piston and rings. may have to roll the motor over a bit.

you should be able to rent a compression gauge at auto zone.
