Warped valve,check compression on all cylinder,s,one is leaking down,got same 4.3 in my silverado,went threw same as you ,replaced all,and found valve warped.

But it's only got 42000 on moter and it would only show one cylinder misfire if it was a valve correct

Not really,mine had 3 warped valve,s on different cylinder,s,being warped cause them to seat and sometime,s not,causing my random misfire on different cylinder,s.But that said check compression to rule me out.
