No you check the tip of the rotor lines up with the edge of the cutout on your distributor body .that is the basic adjustment. you move the distributor very small amounts when adjusting the dwell angle when you use the timing light.

SOURCE: Fitting cam shafts on Volvo 850se 1994 20v 2ltr

There is a special tool that mechanics use for the alignment of the camshaft pullys. It is basically an angle iron straight edge that fit exactly into the camshft grooves.. Just make sure that the engine 's first cylinder is at the top. (Top dead center) before fitting the cam(s) into place.

How do i do valve timing from scretch after timing belt broke on a volvo t5,2.3l s60


If the belt broke while the motor was running, the motor is likely badly damaged since, I believe, the five cylinder Volvo engines are "interference engines". The crankshaft and pistons keep moving while the car is in gear and still moving, but the valves stop dead the instant the timing belt breaks. The pistons would have hit some of the valves, cracking or badly damaging the cylinder head and some pistons. If the motor is not damaged internally, though, just line up the timing marks on the cam shaft sprockets and the crankshaft sprocket and put on a new belt. Go online for a diagram of how to align the timing marks.

How to set timing when you relesh tensioner and it changes the alignment postion of pullies 2000 ford ranger 2.5 l


Here is the trick. Align marks. Put the timing belt on the crank shaft pulley first, and after on the overhead cam pulley. Release tensioner and rotate the crank shaft till the timing belt makes two full circles. Try to align marks, you will be at least one tooth off. Align the crank shaft on the mark, and find out how many teeth you are off at the cam shaft pulley. Count the teeth. Remove the timing belt from cam shaft pulley only. Move cam shaft pulley in reverse according to the number of teeth you counted. Make sure the crank shaft pulley is on the mark. Mount the belt at cam shaft pulley.Rotate the belt two circles and check the marks. Repeate this procedure til after releasing the tensioner, and rotating the timing belt two full circles, the mars will be align.

I'm currently interested in a 1996 volvo 960; without having much volvo knowledge, what do you suggest I investigate and or what type of repairs are common after 140000 miles on the car


Does the current owner of the vehicle have well kept service records? If he does, ask him if the timing belt was changed on this car. And ask him to show you the service records. The timing belt should have already been replaced, but if not, you will need to replace it immediately. Along with water pump, seals, and balance shaft belt. If the vehicle has an interference motor, and the timing belt breaks going down the road, it has the potential to ruin the motor. The timing belt on a Volvo is not for the beginner, and most shops will not even touch it. Tech will need special tools to lock down the cams, or risk even bigger issues. Also, do a visual inspection, paying close attention to the undercarriage, looking for oil leaks. Volvo's are great cars, but the routine maintenance can be costly.

1994 Volvo 940 Station Wagon timing belt


I hope you've solved the problem by now, but there are alignment marks on the crank shaft (top pulley), idler (lower side), and cam shaft (smaller, bottom pulley) which should be aligned with stationary marks on the timing belt rear cover.

The belt has marks that align with the aforementioned marks (lines). The double marks on the belt align with the camshaft marks and the single marks with the others.

Loosen the tensioner clamp (nut) to allow the spring loaded tensioner to press on the belt and retighten the nut.

Rotate the crank shaft (clockwise, probably two revolutions) and make sure the pulley marks realign to the marks on the cover (they don't have to realign with the marks on the belt).

Rotate the crank shaft a full revolution once the belt is on and check that alignment is preserved.

Periodically loosen and retension the tensioner nut (access through a hole in the cover) to ensure that tension is maintained as the belt relaxes.

I am replacing the timing belt on a 93 volvo 940 with 4 cly single overhesd cam no tubo. Where does the cam's timing mark line up? I don not have a repair manual for this.


I replaced mine on the same car.  I borrowed the NAPA timing belt book to get the timing marks.  There are three that need to be aligned.  I would suggest going to NAPA to buy the belt ($25) and while there, ask to see that book so you can write down the timing marks.  The mark on the crank shaft gear is on the inside of the gear, while the cam gear is on the outside of the gear.  Or, you could just buy the book.  It's still a lot cheaper than paying someone to replace the belt.
