No one is going to tell you to reuse stretch to yield bolts. Though I have. The socket is what you need to get the bolts out. 6" long triple square. I got a 4 piece set at AutoZone for $22.

Duralast 3/8in and 1/2in Drive Triple Square Bit Socket Set 4 Piece
Part Number:

If you are going through a head gasket replacement make sure to check both the block deck square and head deck square before you just slap a new gasket on and then either new factory TTY bolts or ARP head studs. If you need any parts or such just let me know as we keep everything in stock and on hand as well.

like red said no one is going to tell you to re use stretch to torque head bolts, but there is a reason & that is an area you probably don't want to economize in .
