I'd be happy to loan you my cam locking tool if you want me to put it in a box and mail it.

Is it time for a 1964 122 wagon?

You may need to jack up engine slightly on the passenger side for the exhaust hub, the space is pretty tight there.

I don't know what is resonating exactly. Hub itself - ok, exhaust valves - not ok. What happens if you disconnect VVT solenoid? Does resonating sound go away?
I'll complete collecting replacement parts this weekend -- exhaust vvt hub, cam seals, oil pump service kit, water pump, t-belt, s-belt, tensioners, and idler pulley -- anything missing?

My next step is collecting tools.

VTL: do I disconnect vvt solenoid for a clarity of the issue?

Don’t forget to have a few gallons of Zerex G-05 & distilled water on hand. Your water pump bolts need sealant on them too, I use new bolts but many reuse the old ones with sealant on them.

Oil pump bolts - reuse but clean very thoroughly with solvent. I used Volvo anaerobic sealant on mine. Seal at uppermost portion of threads & under the head.

Correct. VVT won't advance angle.

Is this Volvo anaerobic sealant (PN 30644517) same as the one used on oil pan matting surface?

Correct. You could probably get away with any oil/fuel proof RTV though. I used it and have no leaks several thousand miles later.
