    Sometime when I'm investigating a failure I tend to use the Torque wrench to check the torque on the bolts. If I suspect a blown head gasket I use the wrench to confirm the bolts was not loose, if it was then I probably don't have a problem with uneven surface of the head deck. But I still check the surface area for true flatness.

    +1 If you set the torque and turn left on a left hand bolt it will tighten it to that specific torque and vise versa! its just like any other torque wrench just you can go both directions!

    When checking Torque you should go in the tightening direction, starting lower and working your way higher, at correct torque it should be 5% higher then the value.
