MG 1500 MIdget Timing

I am puzzled about my car not starting. So, I replaced plugs, and checked timing with the flywheel at -10 TDC. When I pulled the distributor cap, I think the rotor is not even near the number 1 plug and I can't turn it enough to get close. Am I looking at this right? Is my timing chain off? I attached a photo to show it.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Hi did you get any further with finding out what the problem was?

How longs the mustard number...classic speed shape. Everyone talks about Cabells racy guns from the time but you look at what Midget was making back then.
