valve covers 81 stars and stripes

has anyone figured out how to tighten the center valve cover bolts next to the exhaust risers. Is there a special tool out there? I got about a 1/2 turn on the rest. Would like to tighten them. I would hope you dont have to remove the risers.

The only tool for the job is a flex socket on a ratchet extension.

I don't know what size yours call for, but Sears sells them individually for about $6/each.

I used a 1/4" universal, as I call it, when I snugged mine up a bit. Similar to the photo above, except it has 1/4" female and male drive ends, and then you add any size 1/4" drive socket. Accomplishes the same end.
