2004 6.0 Rocker Box Leaking

Hello
I am looking at purchasing a 2004 with early 6.0.
It is leaking oil between head and rocker box, is this like changing a valve cover gasket or do the head bolts have to come out. If so then I would (should) also have to do the head gaskets?
Have read and searched through forums and cannot find a clear answer, Thanks for any help.

Yes the head bolts do have to be removed to replace the rocker carrier gaskets. Makes the job a big pain!!

Anyone have the torque specs for tightening the rocker carrier down? The smaller bolts that bolt it to the heads, I can't find those anywhere... Thanks!
