What wrench to use?

I need to tighten these oil cooler fittings on the bottom of my radiator.
These fittings are in a incredibly tight spot.

I'm thinking maybe a flare wrench with swivel head might work!?!

Re: What wrench to use?

Hey guys thanks for the replies. I really didn't feel like taking the radiator out. Lazy I guess.
I had a crows foot.
So this is what I used to tighten it and stop the leak.
