Caterpillar GC45K-SWB:
No start and backfire intake

Hello, I have a cat GC45KSWB V6 vortex unit not starting and backfire when cranking. The unit was running great, backfired and now won't start and backfires during through air intake. I checked distributed, plugs, all good. I'm not too familiar with the V6 engine so any usual suspects would be helpful
