Having problems with your 1995 Volvo 960 ?

Timing Someone, another shop, installed a head on a 95 volvo 960 but didn't set the timing. unfortunately, he didn't mark the cam gears either. None of us can figure this out, and I have two of the best mechanics I've ever met working on this thing. Please can someone help?

Hi,
\015\012The 3L 24V straight 6 engine has timing marks on the crankshaft pulley & on the camshaft pulleys. The crankshaft pulley aligns with a mark on the front of the block, the camshafts align with two marks on the plastic cover on the top. The ignition timing, the fuel/air mixture & the valve timing are not adjustable. The 3L engine is known as an "Interference" engine, in other words, if the cam belt breaks or is not set up correctly, the pistons 'meet' the valves, with dire consequences!!!!!
