500SEC just won't start

My 1985 500SEC just decided to not start a couple of weeks ago and I am at my witts end to figure it out. I am getting good spark to the top of the distributor but not to the plugs. I installed a new cap & rotor, still no start. Checked my ignition timing-OK, I can smell gas out the tailpipe so must be getting fuel. If my timing chain jumped a tooth would it act like this? It just turns over & over with absolutely no sign of combustion of firing in any cylinder. I am thinking that maybe my distributor went bad?! How often do these things fail? Anybody have any ideas? Thanks in advance,..Brant
