I am looking to tighten the nuts on the head and do not have the proper tool to tighten them down with. Any help with acquiring the proper tool would be greatly appreciated.

There are several tool companies that make 12 point offset wrenches for use with a torque wrench.

However, a short wrench ground to fit (like the one that came in the stock toolkit) seems to do the job.

I wouldn't be too concerned with trying to 'properly' torque your cylinder base nuts. Equally tight and NOT stripped should be just fine. Remember to re-torque (or "re-tighten") them a couple of hundred miles down the road ...
