Do you have you plug wires on correctly.

Next even if you geting spark. Coil packs could be bad only realiable way to test is new ones. You have almost 200000 miles. And if you are taking the time to put in a timing chain. You might as well change them for the best spark you can get.
Its easy 3 bolts just take out the entire ignition control modual just kidding about the easy you need someone with skinny arms its a very tight space and you are half blind cause its right behind the block go underneath the car thats jacked up it can be done at home.
Then go and test your ignition control module. Good luck.
