Question about 1982 Volvo 240 Series
I aligned the cam shaft and crank shaft pulley and idler pulley on their marks. my question is , if I need to move distributor, rotor does not align with shaft mark on distributor.
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.

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.
