ENGINE TIMING

1995 Volvo 960

Engine Mechanical problem
1995 Volvo 960 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic

I sent my car's cylinder head to be reconstructed because one of the pistons was cracked so I installed everything as it was before with new seals and the whole kit but now the car wont start and I think that the engine timing might be the problem. Please help, thank you.

If you had the cylinder head rebuilt then you should have the tappets measured again and make sure the correct tappets are being used. Once the valves are replaced you wont be able to use the same tappets again since they are all different thickness. After you have the correct tappets in place you can reassemble the head.
