Nope, wouldn't run at 180 out. You rotated the engine after removing the distributor putting it out of time. Pull #1 spark plug, put a cotton ball in The spark plug hole (not down in the cylinder just resting in the hole) turn engine by hand with a breaker bar, when the cotton ball blows out of the hole you are on #1 compression stroke. You should be almost at TDC on the timing pointer Continue to rotate until Timing mark is aligned with zero. Now at this point the rotor needs to be pointing at #1 on the cap. I am betting it is not. Pull the dist now and reset to #1
