Help on a 305's timing

I am rebuilding my 305 and the timing is killing me. I have the #1 piston up on the compression stroke. The dots on crank (up) and cam (down) are lined up. rotor button is facing the #1 spark plug and then I started my firing order. When I try to start it up, it blows out the carb like its 180 deg. out on the timing. I bumped the motor till I got the #1 on compression stroke again and the dots changed crank (up) and the cam (up). WHY????????
please if anyone has the answer I need it bad. Been dealing with this problem for about 4 weeks now. Thanks
