Default 1978 244 timing sprockets

Hey all
I am after the 2 sprockets (pulleys) for the cam and intermediate shaft on my red block Volvo. I am finding conflicting part numbers on some sites. From what I can gather they are both the same. Where is a good place to purchase these at a reasonable price online? I see there are some from aliexpress but not sure I can trust them https://www.aliexpress.com/item/244-...671847965.html.
Any help would be greatly received.
Thanks
Jeff

Never used the site you listed. Not sure I'd trust it either. Try this:

https://www.ipdusa.com/products/6445...t-b21-b23-b230

I know it's more expensive but it is a trustworthy site.

I have purchased things from them before. I trust the website I was meaning trust the product. They seem to look the part and at that price (about a quarter of the linked one) it might be worth a shot

do you need an indexable cam sprocket? those are normally only used in racing applications as the factory default settting is optimal for all around driving (good balance of low end torque and higher rpm horsepower).

ah, then find a 240/740/940 at the JY, and get the cogs off it, they should be interchangeable with any b21, b23, b230 engine.

If you get the sprockets off of a b230, I suggest you take all three. Somewhere along the lines I believe they changed the shape of the teeth on the sprocket requiring a different timing belt. All three need to match and you need to get the correct timing belt.
