SOURCE: What is the fireing order and distributor wire

1432 clockwise
bring number one piston to top dead center and look at rotor- start number one wire in that spot-
if engine doesn't start and sounds funny
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
