Are you sure this was the compression stroke and not the exhaust stroke?

Unless your spark plug wires are all rotated accordingly (the basis of Roger's question), typically the rotor is to point...

Any chance the distributor worked itself loose, and now the distributor is out of time? It does not matter if you can or cannot rotate the distributor by hand. Are these cold starts you're trying?...
