360 head bolt leak?

I just got my new (rebuilt) AMC 360 running and I have a coolant leak from the passenger side rear Head Bolt.

Do the Head Bolts go through to the water jacket? I know that is true for Chrysler 360's. The oil is fine there appears to be no water/coolant in it. I'm going to try re-torquing the bolt, if I can get to it with a wrench. I really don't want to remove the engine at this point! Is there some other trick or way to stop the leak?

No tricks, and the bolt does not run through a coolant passage.
