My problem is - the rear spark plug on the lefthand bank is fouling. I changed all the plugs and replaced the ignition coil on the cylinder with the fouled plug. Also changed the driver side O2 sensor. Fault codes were 1222 before the O2 sensor change and 1212 after the O2 sensor change. I get a lot of smoke at startup and idle. I evidently have a 7 cylinder 540.

Compression check as follows:

Left bank, front to rear = 200, 200, 202, 222

Right bank, front to rear = 200, 210, 204, 212

Engine was up to temp when I did the compression check, throttle was wide open, cycled each cylinder thru 12 compression cycles.

Any suggestion as to what I should be looking for?
