93 7.3 idi no compression in #7

My daughter just got a 93 7.3 idi it smoked bad and was missing, compression test showed 450 on all but #7 has 0. She's doing all the work herself with me just overseeing it and giving advise. Will she be good with only outing rings on the one bad cyl or should we rering them all

If you are gonna fight to take it apart may as well replace them all...make sure you dont have a valve issue or broken valve spring on that cylinder as well could be simple fix just by pulling a valve cover
