Pick up a spark tester (it'll cost under 15$) . After installing the tester on one of the 2 rear right or left bank spark plugs, have someone turn the engine over and check for spark. If you have no spark, you could have either a broken timing chain or a broken cam-shaft. The only other minor item you didn't mention with regard to the ignition system was to make sure you have a good hot power source to your distributor. If these things don't work, it might be time to check that the carburetor or throttle body fuel injection (as applicable) is providing fuel.
