Wonder if they’re fitting the cam seals the correct way around-if they’re not fitted with the correct rotation in the correct positions, they’ll leak badly.

Get them to use genuine seals too-I’ve found aftermarket ones are rubbish and quite often don’t have the little raised rubber lines in them to aid sealing.
