The head of the bolts do not face to the outside or I would have done that.

You can usually pick up TQ wrenches from any local area hardware store (Harbor Freight). Make sure you get the 3/8 drive, ft/lbs, click type (and get the insurance if they have it, reason being if you drop a TQ wrench it will mess up it's dial values). Ranges vary from TQ wrench to TQ wrench, check your appropriate manual for TQ values and buy your wrench accordingly

When it comes to brakes, suspension, or engine gaskets (valve cover, oil pan, waterpump, etc) and parts I always try to use a TQ wrench. The specs are the for a reason.

I can image what would happen to planes if specs weren't followed. Why should it be any different for your car?

Anyways, 3/8" tq wrench with a regular/shallow socket (13 mm I believe is the correct size) and a 6" or 9" (3" + 6") extension will give you the clearance you need IIRC.

P.S. Sears has a sale right now on their Craftsman TQ wrenches ($50.00) for either 3/8 or 1/2 dirve.

In some places it just isn't reasonably possible to torque to spec. Try getting a torque wrench into place on the top two bolts for your S197's bellhousing and you'll see exactly what I mean.
