Head bolt retorque?

Are we still retorqueing head bolts these days? 355 small block, World steel heads, thought I saw a water stain out corner of head. ARP head bolts sealed with thread sealer, I'd rather not disturb that stuff.

A retorque never hurts, especially on a engine tht is taxing the limits of head gasket integrity. I dont retorque very often because of the trouble with getting all the valve gear off and back on. Dont let laziness get in your way like I do.
