My 86 Indy 600 has been setting outside in the cold for a couple days and I went to change plugs on it today and noticed some seapage from the head gasket and around one of the head bolts. I have not had any issues with it and am wondering if maybe I can get away with retorquing the headbolts/nuts for the rest of the season. What is your opinion/experience? What is the torque spec for these? The BLOCK is an 83 but it is oil injected so not sure on exact year of whole assembly. Thanks for any input.

Personally I would just change them, not really that hard nor expensive and could save you from some major problems.

If fluid is leaking out, more then likely your sucking air in. Might cause it to run lean and burn it down. Few bucks now will save you alot later.

^^ Exactly what everyone else said. We're not talking about an expensive fix, just the opposite. For the 20 minutes it'll take it's worth it for piece of mind.
