[Healeys] Retorqueing head after rebuild

I suppose it depends on the type of head gasket. In the old days we 
generally used to re-torque after about a 1000km/600mls. That was the 
norm for most cars.
It all changed in the late sixties and early seventies when re-torquing 
became unfashionable. These days they don't even know what re-torquing 
is all about.
If you have used a modern composite head gasket I would not worry about 
re-torquing. On the other hand if you used an old-fashioned steel 
asbestos type, re-torque.
