Timing help please..

Good Morning or evening depends on the part of the world you are.
guys i have taken on the valve clearence job myself which all the valves were out, so ive stripped it in the correct order and put all the shims and buckets back in....no problem so far...then i noticed the possible problem.... whilst i thought i had it tdc1 i placed the cams down as ive removed them and the holes on the bottom of each cam where sitting at the top of the cams ie upside down if you get me...so looking at the picture i took piston 1 the lobes are all facing outwards piston 4 the lobes are facing inwards piston 2 lobes are pointing down( engaged) piston 3 inlet lobe is pointing up and exhaust is pointing down....other than ripping me a new 1 what advice would you give....shall i reinstall the cams like this or shall i reset the timing and what are the correct steps to do so...thanks in advance.
