hi, just noticed an oil leak on cylinder head gasket , rebuilt engine years ago and seemed to remember it was awkward to torque head down with sockets on wrench, has anyone got any suggestions to make it easier or type of wrench to use?

thanks for your replies,done about 15 miles today and everthing ok, plugs light brown in colour in the middle but black on the outer, opened it up more today as still running in , never missed a beat. how do you check plugs with an ohm meter?
