then you are 180% out---- bring up # one piston again and look at rotor this time it should point oppsite of where it was- redo plug wires- engine should start

The 1990 240 volvo isn't getting any spark.

If you are sure about spark----there is an inline fuse on left front fender in engine compartment.If this is not it then get the Bently manual from IPDUSA.COM
