Hi Joe. It is 2.0t Volvo not 1.9. Engine number B4202t. It is no use working on the camshafts marks. Someone removed it before and it can be put on the shafts any way, and it has slots to turn can pulleys. Also its non vvt pulleys. What I need is the directions of the camshaft lobe's, intake and exhaust. It is confusing because there is no tdc piston. All is almost in the middle if crank is on mark.

Hi:

I'm sorry but I don't have the information you are requesting. Hopefully, another tech may. How are you to properly time the vehicle without marks? I realize that at TDC, both intake and exhaust of cylinder 1 are furthest away from opening, but that is a guessing game. I will continue looking to see if I can find something to help.

You need the cam lock tool to set the timing up. You can get the tool from Amazon.
