Honestly it's probably just dirty spark plugs. Did you pull any of the spark plugs and inspect the tips for build up? A couple things to remember:
1.) If the timing chain broke, the valves wouldn't be opening so you wouldn't have any air coming out of the exhaust during crank. You said it smells like you're getting fuel, so I'm assuming that means you're smelling the exhaust fumes, right?
2.) The crank sensor tells the ignition system when to send a spark to the plugs. If you're getting good spark, it's unlikely that the crank sensor is faulty.
If it's too soon for spark plugs to need replacing, check your sensors. A faulty oxygen sensor for example could cause your engine to run 'rich', resulting in faster crud build up on spark plug tips.

good old ford lol, try looking at the crank sensor its located at the front of the engine tucked in right hand side of exhaust manifold and gearbox, two pin plug, i have also known these to have no end of faults with the fusebox.
easy to remove, and solder the connections inside they all suffer eventually, if your not to handy with cars i recommend taking to a auto electrician, easy if you know how. Good luck Davelee
