The only thing left is the cam lobe it self. Run all new plugs for just one week. Pull the plugs - laying them out each plug for each cylinder - -mark them. Change them to NEW again - in one week - pull them and compare them with the new plugs. Some times you just get back plugs too so if you want to short cut it - change the plugs say - that cylinder with number 3.
Also - how old is the timing chain? This happens a lot with stretched chains - That is an old engine so I would seriously consider the timing chain being stretched. Inspect it as a precaution. I would replace it if you do not remember when it was changed to the month and year.
