4.0 missing on cylinder #6

Cylinder 6 won't fire, we replaced the cap,rotor,plugs and wires thinking that would fix it but it didn't. The cylinder has compression. My guess is fuel injector, anyone else have a guess? Rig is in the shop getting some of the rollcage reworked but i need to figure out where to dive in to fix this motor when i get it back friday.

its either gonna be the injector or the distributor. ive seen both cause your problem. use a tester to see if the distributor is firing at that cylinder. i suppose the old "ground the plug wire to sumthin" will work but i prefer a light. if thats fine then its your injector
