Honda Hobbit PA50II - two questions

I am rebuilding a PA50II engine and have two questions.

1st: On a 2,000+ mile salvaged engine I installed a new crank, bearings, seals, piston and rings, honed the cylinder, set the correct ring gap and yet I only get 115 psi on a compression test. Should I be getting a higher reading?

2nd: The three alignment pins on the rotor do not fully penetrate the holes in the flywheel. Is this normal or is something wrong?

Any and all help would be appreciated. Jack
