90 240 ignition timing problem

    I just finished laying an engine into a 90 Volvo 240 wagon.

    It runs for two minutes, will not restart (no fuel pressure). I
    replace main relay. It starts now.

    The base timing (non-adjustable EZ-116K ignition) seems to be about
    ~45-60 degrees BTDC which is way advanced. Idle staggers and spark
    knocks badly while driving. It runs for 15 minutes, will not restart
    (no spark).

    I replace the flywheel/crankshaft ignition pickup, it starts now with
    the same ignition timing problem as before.

    I made a point of indexing the flywheel/flexplate to the crankshaft
    when I swapped it onto the new engine (92 240), so that it was aligned
    as it was on the old engine. There is a small possibility that I
    wasn't paying full complete attention, was smoking crack cocaine or
    something, and have the flywheel/flexplate w/ hall effect wheel
    misaligned. I really can't see any other possible cause of my
    problem, and I don't really want to have to yank the transmission to
    check/adjust/etc.

    Any Volvo gurus out there care to speculate? Thanks.

    position of the crank sensor will make the timing more advance or retard.
