Quick question... taking the fact that the anaerobic OEM pink sealant is almost 100$ here, do you know of any other similar products from Reinz or Liqui Moly / Loctite ? Thanks :)

Loctite 5188 I guess is your best bet or Loctite 510 which is more heat resistant, less flexible and needs longer curing on Aluminium.

I use a razor and then brake clean to get the oil residue off. It was pretty easy this time around since i'd really only had the car upto temp twice.

I think the leak had something to do with the fact that I had bolts out in that area to fit the stupid little heat shield I made for the second filler cap. I know I didn't tighten the bots back up enough because I noticed the leak later and tightened them. During the time they were loose, I might have done a compression test and got oil in the gap.

That said, I pressed out the second filler and pressed in a new cap. I got the cam cover nice and clean, now I just need to clean the head and tap one stripped hole to M8x1.25 and dig a bolt out of my bin. Got new cam seals and spark plug orings also another tube of Volvo sealant. I meant to ask the dealer if they sell single spark plugs or if I have to buy a pack.

I used one 50ML tube of Permatex 51813 anaerobic sealant on my cam cover.  Note that it requires the use of Permatex 24163 activator spray - all told it was around $45 for both packs.  I have enough of the Activator spray to do a couple more cam covers too. 

Before I had the machine shop clean my head, I used a plastic scraper, acetone, and a rag to clean all the old sealant off - worked fairly well.

I decided to use a helicoil instead of just tapping the hole out to a larger size. Worked great.

Put the cam cover back on. It looks a little thin in one spot in the pic, but I think it's just a reflection. I did put an extra little bit on the head on the back side.

Now I just need to put the new cam seals in and finish putting things back together.

Took it out for the maiden voyage last night. First impression.. it sounds incredible. B)

A bit nervous as the remaining oil burnt off but the oil leak is fixed. It kept stalling when i'd let off the gas and rpms dropped too quickly, but adding some fuel in the lower rpms below idle solved that. I might need to raise the front struts up slightly since it still rubs quite a bit with 235s. Still need to have the dump tube routed back into the downpipe. For now the screamer pipe is in place but it's a tight fit and does rattle a bit under certain conditions. Also, the rear part of my exhaust occasionally vibrates on the rear ipd sway bar so that willl need addressing at some point.

Still running the Siemens 630s and will need to upgrade to 1000cc injectors. Beyond that, i think the limiting factor will be the cly sleeves. Since i've barely driven the car in the last few years, i'm not going to push things too hard. Honestly if the motor gave out anytime soon, I would have very little motivation to fix it. Although, even driving it for a short time yesterday did remind me how nice it is to drive. :)

Which 1000cc injectors are you planning on running? 

I am running the DeatschWerks 900cc and love them. They actually flow 1000cc at 3 bar and were less than $400 for the set. I can idle the car all the way down to 15.3 AFR without problems.

Your car looks amazing. Also just to give you some peace of mind that is way more sealant than you need.

Well done Mark!  What what, you installed the screamer pipe?  Pass somebody and stand on it!  It'll scare the dodo out of them!  Lol.  Glad it's up and running Bro.

Three year thread revival!

For some reason I'm now seeing all my pics again, did photobucket actually relink 3rd party hosting? Are the pics loading for everyone else?

I've been doing lots of work/overhauling my P2Rs the last few years but still driving my S70 in the summer. This year I decided to insure my T-5R for a few weeks prior to swapping insurance onto my S70 for the season. It's my only automatic car and feels funny, but its fun just to cruise in. It does look like the rear main is leaking so a manual swap might be in order :) I already have all the parts.

I'm going to turn the boost up a bit on the S70 this year and get my exhaust rattle fixed. lol

I have a chrome extension that never worked but it's certainly possible. I was just talking with @lookforjoe at carlisle about how it's like a car forum dark age with photobucket down. Maybe that's changing.

f-you bucket says (direct quote): "We have listened to you, and significantly lowered the price of the Photobucket plan offerings. For a limited time all of your 3rd Party Hosted Images have been restored."

What a surprise that their new business direction didn't turn out as well as they had hoped.
