ok, sorry I'm somewhat a rookie. Are those #'s identified on the distributor cap ( Iunderstand on the head 1-2-4-5-3 left to right) but not sure of the connections to the dist. cap
Expert:  Michael replied 8 years ago.
THe cylinders are numbered 1 is the belt side 5 is the trans side.

Volvo caps and wire looms are numbered.

This can be hard to see on the car. pull the cap off and you should be able to see ok.

Just follow your wires down and label each one.
Look to see if they are out of order.
