Thanks for the tip I will give it a try.Red, you need allen wrenches that have a BALL END on them .. Stick the ball end in the head at an angle and lock on a small pair of vise grips and work em a little bit at a time ... Always start with the inner bolts first of course. Amazon.Ebay.Harbor Freight have inexpensive double ended sets.

Occasionally I make a tool for a specific job and the problem here reminded me of one I made for hex head cap screws that had to be torqued on the valve cover of a Harley Evo Engine in a FXR Chassis. I used a piece of 7/16 hex stock center drilled for a diameter that I could press a short piece of hex key into it. This could also be done with smaller hex stock, say 3/8" or 10mm and a Torx bit. The thickness of the hex stock could be made shorter in order to get into tighter places. In the pictured tool the hex key portion protrudes only enough to fill the hex hole in the socket head cap screw but the hex stock is about 3/8" thick. I see no reason the hex stock couldn't be made about 3/16" thick and the Torx bit cut off appropriately.Well I discovered my exhaust manifold bolts are torx head, T40 to be exact, I just so happened to have an Allen 13 piece Short Arm Torx Key set in my tool box, I was able to fully insert the torx key in the manifold bolt and tighten all four securely per Jungleman’s process starting from the inside out. Worked perfectly, no more leak. Hope this helps someone else.
