Question 351W harmonic balancer problem

Hi All
I have a 351W, I discovered today, the timing marks are off about 18 degrees, I did this by putting a stiff wire down the spark plug hole at about 90 degrees + and - on the crank, and looked for an even measurement both ways, the marked TDC almost lines up with the keyway, I am not sure if I have the right balancer, It was changed a few years ago when I got the engine balanced, and never checked it against the old one, my question is, did the outer move, or is it the wrong part, the timing pointer on my engine is on the no.1 cylinder side, and it is a 2 bolt pressed metal item, the balancer is a 4 bolt, it also seams to run true, and the rubber looks in good shape, I tried to move the outer manually, and it did not budge, any assistance would help re leave a few extra grey hairs
