With the crank on TDC and in #1 firing position, your rotor should point to the number one position (wire) on the distributor. Your crank makes 2 revolutions for every one revolution of the cam so you could be in the wrong firing position (not sure what the order is). If you have access to a manual, it should tell you what the rocker arm positions should be as you approach #1 firing position. Sorry, I don't have the information you need to determine what firing position you are in but sounds like you could be 180 out of sequence or your motor could be in #1 position but your distributor is not.
