I took it to get gas and after the fill up it wouldnt start again. Towed it to my house and changed, plugs, wires, distributor, D. Cap, coil, cylinder, and starter, then when trying to start there was a loud pop and then still no spark, last option is the timing chain right?

Actually it could be anything from a muffler that has blown form a backfire to a timing chain or rocker arm coming off due to a bent pushrod. Normally on a timing chain you replace the gears as well as chain and gaskets, new antifreeze etc. If there are plastic pieces in pan form chain/gear breakage then they have to be cleaned out.
