Looks like a reply I typed up did not make it.

"oil passages" would be more clear.

If he really thinks oil is oozing out of the head bolts & doesn't think its the intake manifold gasket, I would take it to another shop, at least for a 2nd opinion.

At 100 miles/qt I would probably pull the head and fix it - if I was going to keep the car for a while. But be prepared to replace the head at the time you do it. I say that because if I pulled the original head I would have it skimmed & pressure tested and if it failed, I would replace it. I suspect many of these heads have issues & that not all the issues are obvious for some time. However, if the head comes off I would not want to have to do it again because I cut corners the 1st time around
