Rocker valve cover

Post by Seany27 » Sat Sep 08, 2018 2:49 am

Will a 2.3 aluminium rocker valve cover fit a 2.0? Both are 20v engines, mine got a crack in the camshaft sleeve

What the 2.3 out of?
If the 2.3 is a RN engine it will work. If the 2.3 is a RNC engine, I cannot say for sure.

N series = Volvo White block, RN = Revised N series, RNC = Revised N series Compact.

The 850s where 1992–1997 they should all be N series engines, production of the RN engines began in 1999, you should be good to go.
