If the engine is backfiring, there is something wrong with the ignition timing. You may have to go back and make sure the mechanical timing is correct at the timing chain and then do the ignition timing over again; it’s pretty easy to get these 180 degrees off. The camshaft position sensor is located in the distributor and the better thing to do is replace the distributor as a unit instead of replacing parts.
I recommend you have an experienced technician, such as one from YourMechanic, come to your location to take a closer look at the timing and offer a personal diagnosis to get your van starting and running again.
