TIMING

1992 Volvo 940

Engine Mechanical problem
1992 Volvo 940 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 196000 miles

I have the B230F engine.
Regarding timing the enginge my Chilton's repair manual says " Rotate the crankshaft so the notch in the convex crankshaft gear belt guide aligns with the embossed mark on the front cover (12 o'clock position).&Quot;
My Haynes manual says " Align all the timing marks on the engine block with the marks on the crankshaft and camshaft sprokets.&Quot;
Both have drawings of the same engine, but indicate slightly different positions of the crankshaft, idler and camshaft alignment points.
Can you help?

Hi bsexton114,

Illustrations are sometimes not accurate, it just gives you an idea what to look for.

Just align the marks according to those found on the block and head/cover and all should be well.
