Unhappy Desperate! 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 5.9l cylinder 6 misfire with ticking sound

Just replaced cylinder heads that cracked. Had to get new heads. Replaced plugs at the same time. Did not replace wires, distributor cap or rotor. Only misfires on #6, as it happens that was a rocker arm bolt that was hard to tighten. Didn't replace rocker arms or push rods. I need to figure this thing out right the first time very low on money as I am living on a VA pension. Very limited income, this will have to come out of food money. Tried getting one of those light up spark plug testers, it wouldn't fit in the plug wire. Also oil level is remaining constant so I don't think it is the plenum gasket. I am open to any and all suggestions.

PS. Truck ran well 3 days before getting P0306 code. Only did short trips prior to having to go 30 miles for a doctors appointment. Ran well on the way there and acted up on the way back.
