I just put a new longblock in my square, and during installation I noticed 
the same issue, though not to that degree. All you need to do, AFTER you 
have made sure that the block is at #1 TDC is just pull out the dist 
drivestaft enough (you dont have to pull it out all the way) to reset it in 
the proper location. Just look at the bottom of the dist with the rotor 
pointed at the notch, and reset the drive shaft so that it will be in the 
correct location. Remember that the driveshaft rotates slightly during 
installation. Also keep in mind that you will need to have enough room to 
rotate the dist to set the timing.
