It doesn't matter. Just replace the valves when the head is taken to the machine shop.

How to set camshaft timing

you should have bought a Chilton or Haynes manual. most cars and trucks are all different and have a set way to set them. if you broke the chain or belt and bent a valve. you will need to do expensive repairs pulling the heads to change valves. not sure what car you have or why you pulled the timing off. so I cant be sure what to tell you.

Valve settings

- Pull the hand brake and put transmission in neutral.
- Remove spark plug cords.
- Remove the spark plugs.
- Remove the Tappet cover
- Lift up the left front wheel.
Cylinder number 1 is toward the pulleys and belts side.
- Rotate the crankshaft anticlockwise with socket and extension rod and bring the valve tappets (intake and exhaust) No. 4 cylinder on dancing position.
- Adjust the valve clearance of number 1 cylinder.
Valve clearance:
Intake 0.18 - 0.22 (cold) Exhaust 0.25 - 0.28 (cold)
- Rotate the crankshaft anticlockwise to bring the valves of cylinder 2 on dancing position and adjust the valves of No. 3 cylinder.
- Similarly rotate the crankshaft to bring the valves of No. 1 cylinder on dancing position and adjust the valves of No. 4.
- Rotate the crankshaft anticlockwise to bring the valves of cylinder No. 3 on dancing position and adjust the valve clearance of No. 2 cylinder.

Is the 2.0 a interference motor.

The older ABA engine code is not an interference motor. If the belt broke at low RPM there should be no problems. I have replaced a number of broken belts with no problems, but have heard there may be issues at high engine speeds.

Engine wont turn over . timeing belt jumped time number four spark plug looks like piston hit the plug. no conprussion in the cyclinder

well ouch!!! okay is the car worth fixing ? If the belt failed and jumped time there is more damage than just #4. what happened to the plug is the piston hit a opened valve (EXHAUST) and broke it then the valve fell into cylinder while taking in intake and upon coming up on compression that piece from the valve breaking got smashed into the head causing plug damage as well as piston and head damage, i will bet that one other cylinder has a bent valve also, it just bent though not broke but still its damaged. The best solution is to search for a used engine, $ 400.00 - $700.00 dollars. and i hope you have the skills to do the work yourself to save a few more hundred. Dont buy on desperation, check it out, hopefully you can hear it run before purchase,and that it has a exhaust on it so the noisy exhaust don't hide possible other engine noises. And make sure you get at least a thirty day warranty in writing from the seller. if private seller get address,phone #,driver lic#, exact wording on what warranty covers, price paid, and refund amount if motor fails, oil pump pressure !! KNOCKS,cracked heads. do your homework, times are tuff to give $$$$$$$ for another piece of problems or junk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Will the valves will connect with the piston if the timing belt broke?

I'm assuming you meant if the timing belt broke would the pistons hit your valves? 2 parts to this, #1 if your belt just broke you should be fine, #2 if your belt skipped time significantly (highly improbable) only then would your internal components have a chance of hitting each other from components trying to open and close at improper times. This could damage both intake/exhaust valves, other valve train components and even damage the head of your pistons.

My timing belt broke and I have purchased a new one; however, I need to know how to set the correct timing for a 2001 Volvo S60 witha 2.4L engine?

you need a service manual, if you don't have one i fear that you maybe in over your head-either timing belts or chians there are always timing marks which indicate cylinder id and tdc, basically top dead center of cylinder #1 matched to camshaft position of intake and exhaust valves inclosed position (cam lobes off valves and valve springs relaxed to full height-not compressed as that indicates valves are still open or in overlap-you must know you four strokes and consider which stroke will be required) anyways if your belt broke you may have larger problems than lacking a service manual as most engines today are interferance which means that it the valve timing is incorrect you could be tagging valves against the pistons, and if your belt broke you may have already done so-check your valves as they maybe bent and in this case you require a head job as well.
