Exclamation timing question, need advice asap! thanks

So i got myself into a head gasket change... All is going well until i realize somthing. I have the flywheel oick pin installed andthe cam lock blocks on, but from every instruction ive seen the #1 cyl cam lobes for intake and exhaust are facing up andand toward eachother. Not the case with mine. They look the exact opposite and are facing down and away from each other. # 1 and # 6 piston are at the top of the stroke, but i think i somhow locked it in a diffrent cycle of operation. Didnt notice until i go to put it back together because everything went smooth taking it apart. Now i dont know wtf to do! Advise anyone?
