Default Camshaft installation B234f

Hey all

Iím preparing to finish my head installation

I have the Lower portion containing the valves installed and torqued down

Next Iím going to install the cam carrier I will use the loctite version of the sealant and I will prep both surfaces with the primer that loctite suggests

I found a copy of the B234f manual in pdf form on line this will help immensely


My question is when installing camshafts how do you torque them down without the Volvo installation tool?

I just donít want to damage the cams or caps

Thanks guys

Same as the 8v; work your way out a few turns at a time in a similar pattern as torquing down head bolts. It's not like a BMW where the cams are extremely delicate (and even then the special hold down tool isn't necessary).

Most people don't find the tool necessary but I have one available to rent if you don't feel like taking a chance.
