There are three ways to get the distributor 180d out; the drive gear, 
the wires and the dog. Others have mentioned getting the drive gear out 
and making sure the #1 piston is on the COMPRESSION stroke. The other 
way it can happen is if someone rebuilt the distributor and got the 
drive dog back on 180 out. It's easy to do, but doesn't sound like 
that's the case for you.
