Not too good. It’s not firing on cyl 246 left bank

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.

Engine not firing on cylinders 2,4 & 6. Coil pack replaced, air mass sensor replaced . ECU changed but did not change problem.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Marine Mechanic should be aware of?

Plugs, leads & water temp sensor changed. Left bank head had slight bend in no 6 cylinder head valve but head reconditioned
