Are you certain that the timing chain was put on correctly? If so, place the engine at TDC and check to make sure the distributor rotor is pointing at the #1 spark plug wire. From there, making sure you know which way the distributor rotates, recheck the plug wires to make sure they are correct.
HOWEVER, that fact that you smell gas makes me think you may not be getting spark to the plugs. Recheck that to make sure it has a blue snapping spark at the plugs.
PS: Is there any chance that the timing wasn't correct when you installed the timing chain?
