To answer your question; with out someone pulling the Fuel Injection Pump off of the Engine and re-installing it wrong it cannot be 180 Degrees off.
For what ever thier reasons previous owners do not always say the truth.

I would suggest checking the Camshaft Timing First to see if that is correct since the Timing Chain turns the Fuel Injection Pump.
Not hard to do. Line the Timing Mark on the Camshaft Gear up with the one on the Camshaft Bearing Tower and look down at the degree marks on the Crankshaft Damper.

Another issue is that the Degree Pointer sometimes bent or otherwise moved around.
