On my 1989 780 b230ft 4 cyl turbo.

Had the infamous pre pump failure & then my inline failed.Learned more about the LH system than i care to
My son pulled distributor from the rear of cam without marking rotor location to base plate.
I know it has the 2 dog ears as keys to locate to rear of cam, does it only seat one way?
Or is it possible that i installed it 180 degrees out and it managed to start,but with no power?
Confirm the firing order is left to right "4312"
Any assistance is appreciated...
