volvo penta 2 cylinder 2002 valve timing

Dose anyone know how you set the cam valve timing on this engine. I am rebuilding it and there is no mention on the Manuel how or where the marks are. Thanks Ellis.

I can't say, but I'm interested in the answer since I have two of these: one on the boat and one in the garage.

Does the sentence Install the camshaft and make sure that the markings on the camshaft gear wheel and on the crankshaft
gear wheel coincide
not cover it?

From the sound of the OP I think Ellis is having trouble identifying any marks.

I've restored a few old engines in the past, and identifying timing marks can be difficult.
I often use light grade sandpaper on flywheels, gear wheels or wherever they are to clean them up and get some contrast to see them.
Its pretty rare that they disappear totally, they just become less visible.
