So I searched a little, didn't really find much...
Anyone with head gasket weeping try re-torquing the head studs?
Small talking with my dad about it, and he said it might at least help.
Just wondering if anyone has tried this and if they've had any luck.
Thanks!!!!

Long story short, not worth it. If you have it taken down to reach the head bolts just do the head gaskets. The gaskets do suffer wear that breaks them down, if they are leaking they are bad.

Where they leak is such a narrow surface area, that once they begin leaking they are done. I would not expend the effort to just try a retorque.
