You should have lined the mark up before removing the belt first and marked.
Then you should have removed the belt and turned the pulley foward and marked it.
Then you should have turned it back and marked it.

The pulley has to be set in a certain position. Some need to be loaded and others just need to be set in a certain position. It all depends on which Cam the VVT pulley is on.

Finding out how to find lost cam timing mark on a 1997 volvo 960


you are in a bit of a bind. Turning the engine over will result in bent valves so do not touch the crank shaft. you have to loose off all the rockers/ cam followers even to the point of removing the cam shaft. having done that remove no1 cylinder spark plug and by the use of a thin piece of wire turn the crank until the piston reaches top dead center. find this by rocking the crank back and forward until the piston dose'n move up or down check for the crank timing mark next replace the cam shaft and position the cam lobes for no1 piston in such a position that the inlet and exhaust valves move slightly up or down when the cam is moved slightly left or right. this is called valve over lap and with the piston on top dead center means that you now have valve timing for the engine. Cam timing marks can be dot on gear to shiny link on chain or if using a belt a dot on tooth lineing up with mould mark or join on head before starting up do a compression check to prove that there are no bent valves. if you are not mechanically minded enough to attempt the valve timing method it may be cheaper in the long term to let a qualified person do the job

How do you line up the cam gear to the camshaft on a 1996 volvo 960


just align the cam and crank marks with the marks on the covers. the timing marks WILL NOT ALIGN with the number one piston on TDC. just align the marks and the car will run ok. that's the correct way to do it.

Where is the timing mark on the crank shaft on a 1996 volvo 960


960 does not has a timing mark on the crankshaft pulley. The engine timing and firing are controlled by the ECU.

My 1996 Volvo 960 2.9 ltr drives in all Position except reverse


I am not 100% but this should be a good place to start and it will cost you nothing. You need to get under the car. You will see that there is a thin long shaft that is theaded on the end. It should have a rubber gromet at the connector. I believe that your gromet is worn out or perhaps you need to simple adjust the threaded end to be tight as your shifter is traveling to far. I am not an expert, but I have been all over my 960 for the past 261K miles and 10 years of ownership.

Good luck.

Timing


Hi,
The 3L 24V straight 6 engine has timing marks on the crankshaft pulley & on the camshaft pulleys. The crankshaft pulley aligns with a mark on the front of the block, the camshafts align with two marks on the plastic cover on the top. The ignition timing, the fuel/air mixture & the valve timing are not adjustable. The 3L engine is known as an "Interference" engine, in other words, if the cam belt breaks or is not set up correctly, the pistons 'meet' the valves, with dire consequences!!!!!
