The cam gear WILL be off 180 degrees every other crankshaft revolution because that gear has exactly twice as many teeth so it turns half as fast.
Have you checked for spark? Do that first and holler back. If you find a single dandy-looking spark from the coil wire when you turn the ignition switch off, that proves the coil is working. If the pickup coil in the distributor got bumped, check its air gap with a brass feeler gauge. Don't use the regular steel ones because they are magnetic. The gap must be.018". It doesn't take much before they won't produce the proper signal.
