Hello and thanks for using JustAnswer.I will try my best to help you with your question.
What was the trouble code that lead you to #6?
And you changed the parts for the spark plug on the cylinder head near the radiator closest to the air filter box on the drivers side?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have received differnt codes however by process of elimation moving coils chaired the wire harness to the plug came up with that cylender .
Expert:  A. Penland replied 1 year ago.

Just so I understand you, did the miss fire code move to a different cylinder when you did all of this?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The misfire codes change to different cylinders but the faulty cylinder remains the same
Expert:  A. Penland replied 1 year ago.

That does not make any sense.

If the miss fire codes change, how can the same cylinder be bad?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I am unable to find that answer
Expert:  A. Penland replied 1 year ago.

What were the original trouble codes and now what are the new ones?
Example-P0301.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Right now I don't have any because the battery was disconneced
Expert:  A. Penland replied 1 year ago.

If cylinder #6 was still miss firing, you would get a P0306 or a P0356. Get the engine running and see if the check engine light comes on and retest for codes.
