Decisions...

Also, is it bad that I now have this set up on my phone?

Hi all. Just to wrap this thread up:

I re-sealed the cam cover to the cylinder head with Permatex 5183 anaerobic sealant and new Genuine Volvo spark plug tube seals. I did use the CTA camshaft locking tool to keep the camshafts in the proper position while doing the work, but other than that, I didn't use any other purpose-built tools. I was able to remove the cam cover with slow and systematic loosening of the bolts, and application of force with the end of a 3/8" ratchet extension underneath the pry points around the cover. I reinstalled the cover by making small turns to each bolt going from the inside out, then repeating, until the cover was completely snug.

So far I am seeing *no* oil leakage on top of the cam cover or elsewhere, where previously I would start to see oil pooling on the cam cover after about 10 minutes of idling. I am going to call it a win!
