Hey sturner906!

When tightening the head bolts remember to start with the centre bolts and work your way out both ways evenly. Never reuse old bolts, as the bolts are designed to stretch a tiny bit for a perfect fit.

The tightening is done in 3 steps:
First tighten to 20 NM, then 60 NM and, finally, turn the bolts an additional 130 degrees.

Good luck mate!

How do I change the battery on a 1994 volvo 850


Don't know about the layout of the Volvo belts; however, there are basically two ways to release and restore tension on belts.

The old way involved components that could be moved in and out to allow the new belt to be put in place and then have tension restored to the belt. A bolt in an elongated hole allowed this movement. The component that could be moved could be the alternator or power steering pump. The sequence was: loosen the bolt, move the component, install the new belt, move the component back till the belt is tensioned, and tighten the bolt.

The new system involves a tensioner that holds the belt in position. These tensioners can be moved in one direction to allow the new belt to be installed. After the belt is in place, the tensioner is released and it moves back to a position where it keeps the proper tension on the belt.
