Be careful, you can lose some eyebrows and facial hair like that.
I'd say you definitely have a timing issue and it sounds like it may be farther out than you will be able to pick up by turning the distributor.
You may have to remove and replace the distributor in its proper position.
Where is it pointing now? Pic?
