Thanks guys, back into it today after a break. Would the low compression, if stuck valve, cause the MAP or other sensors to prevent ( protect ) the motor starting. Also, is it at all possible timing is out given I had it running fine a short time ago and I havent removed the distributor ? I hear of motors "jumping a tooth" ??
Two dead cylinders would be an issue with unburned gas out the exhaust, but it isn't the reason it won't start. There is something else going on
PS, the Volvo techs here want to pull the motor to do these tests which seems a major thing to do to test this stuff. $4000.00 !!
It just makes it easier, and if I was willing to spend 4K to find out what's wrong, might as well get someone to rebuild with guarantee cost of a running motor.
Maybe carb motor drop in
