    Possibly the cylinder head, the part of an internal-combustion engine that encloses the cylinders and, in larger engines, contains the valves and usually the camshaft or camshafts.

    Re: Without a torque wrench you cannot get the head seated properly.

    Head refers to the cyclinder head, a moulded steel piece which covers the row of cylinders of an engine. In a car engine, it is the steel cover on which the row of spark plugs are connected to the cylinders of the engine.

    A torque wrench or spanner is a special wrench which the maximum torque(turning force) is set so that the bolts securing the cylinder head in place are not over-tightened.
