You don't need a compressor but it does make things easier. You will need to remove the oil pan, cylinder head, timing belt, intake manifold, exhaust manifold, and the power steering pump moved to the side. Be sure to line up the timing marks before removind timing belt. If you have a broken oil ring it is likely that it scored the cylinder wall and there will need to be further repairs needed. If it is stuck and allowing oil by it you will only need to replace the oil ring. If you have gone this far you may want to replace all rings and check the rod bearing clearences to be sure they are within tolerance.
