Has it been like this from day one? If the pointer is at TDC and the rotor is pointed at #8, and you're sure the piston is actually at TDC, sounds like you need to move the wires one tower clockwise or reposition the distributor.

If that doesn't fix it, maybe you have the wrong balancer or timing cover/pointer, do you have a timing tape on it or just the factory markings?
