350 gtl

having just rebuilt the cylinder head and refitted it,and after retiming the valves by means of the timing marks, i find that the ignition timing is 180 degrees out!
how can i remedy this without taking the head off again?

What would happen if you unpluged the ignition wires coming out of the points housing, and switch them around?

What I mean is to unplug the wires at the connector and then plug each wire into the other wire's receptacle. I made the same mistake and had to do it to mine too.
