It is most likely going to be between 5 and 15 degrees BTDC. I would put it at 5 degrees BTDC. At idle, if the motor is extremely quiet, but the exhaust loud, move it to 10. As you advance the timing, the motor should become louder and the exhaust quieter (at idle). As you increase RPMs, the motor should get quieter and the exhaust louder. This is only true with an injector pump that has static timing (does not automatically increase with increased RPM).
If your engine has dynamic timing (automatically advances with increased RPM), then I would set the timing at 5 degrees, test run. Maybe change to 7 degrees, test run...etc. Basically, don't make dramatic changes with the injector pump timing if it is dynamic. I hope this helps.

The bearings in the turbo may be shot. Check the shaft in the turbo if you can wiggle it around its bad and will need to be replaced or rebuilt.

hi-
my 1989 760 turbo wagon died with no warning wednesday morning. it was running fine, i stopped at the post office for 5 minutes, and it wouldnt start. it still hasnt.
i found good information at this page:
http://www.k-jet.org/documents/greenbooks/700-series/
scroll down and there is a link to the greenbook ignition manual (incomplete, buy mostly there) http://www.k-jet.org/files/greenbooks/700/TP31397-1_700_ignition_incomplete.pdf , with excellent troubleshooting instructions if you're handy with electrical testers. there is also a link to the 760 wiring diagram manual http://www.k-jet.org/files/greenbooks/700/TP31075-1_760_wiring_diagrams.pdf. good luck!

Maybe bad Power Stage/Inquiry:driving down the highway at @ 60mph with 1/4 tank of gas in 100 degree temp inwell kept 84 760 Turbo; car just dies, engine turns over but will notstart] [Response:] Well, when my '84 760 Turbo died for no apparentreason as you describe, it was in the freezing dark, going over Donner Pass.Everything on the car worked except no spark and the engine wouldn't run. It turned out to be the ignition module, which is mounted on the inner driver'sside fender well, above the battery, close to where someone else mentioned theballast resistor was located. It's easy to get to and replace. Ifthat turns out to be the culprit, shop around before buying the new part. Volvo dealers charge several hundred $$$ for this thing, but I found one froman independent parts distributor for about $90 - the identical part madeby BOSCH with the same part number on it.
