these bend valves if belt breaks while running
Align the timing marks on the camshaft gears to the notches on the camshaft cover, using the intake gear mark for the intake gear and the exhaust gear mark for the exhaust gear.
Align the mark on the crankshaft gear with the
notch at the bottom of the rear timing belt cover.

if you know the firing order of the engine and also the position of the no.1 cylinder you are off to a good start.
Remove the plug on the no.1 cylinder and turn the engine until the piston starts coming up on compression stroke, you can fing out if it is on compression stroke by placing your finger or thumb over the spark plug hole, you will feel the pressure under your thumb or finger as the piston starts to come up the bore.
when you can feel that pressure you can remove your thumb etc and stick a medium size screwdriver into the hole making sure you hold it from falling into the cylinder, rest the end of the driver on top of the piston and turn the engine slowly by hand only, (not by the starter) until the piston has come up to the top of the cylinder, now have a look at the harmonic balancer on the end of the crankshaft, there should be markings on it and one marking will have a "0" with TDC above it, line that mark up with the pointer and that will be top dead center

Testimonial: "Very educational for me, so I am learning, but I do not know what is harmonic blalancer since I could not find that in volvo's manual; also there is a steel spring near the tensioner need to compressed to insert a pin don't know how to do that does it take a special tool?"
i have had good luck with the Haynes manuals available at almost all parts store chains.they are cheap and very easy to understand.plus they are great for future problems

Fig. 6: The number one cylinder is at TDC when the timing marks are aligned as shown (clikc image for zoom)
Fig. 7: It may be helpful to paint marks on the chain and sprockets if the marks are not easily visible
Remove the camshaft position sensor. Mark the position of the sensor before removal to help keep the ignition timing correct.
Fig. Line up the mating marks on the lower timing chain with the marks on the sprockets
Hope this helps.
