2000 volvo v40 timing belt camshaft alignment

Asked by May 27, 2017 at 12:09 PM about the 2000 Volvo V40 Turbo Wagon

Question type: General

Aligned the camshaft marks with the the marks on the cover when removing the old timing belt. Marked the crankshaft position with white paint at the same position. When I removed the belt, the camshafts both moved. Unfortunately, I didn't realize that there are 2 revolutions of the crank to each 1 revolution of the camshafts. I turned the camshafts independently before realizing this, so now I don't know whether the cams are 180 degrees off. How do I get everything back where it should be? I've heard it said tdc on cyl #1 is not relevant. It seems to me that there could actually be 4 possibilities because there are 2 camshafts, but of course only one is correct. thanks!!!!
