Valve cover nut torque is 17 ft. Lbs. Use a 3/8 inch torque wrench (sears etc..) many times nuts will not even take 17 ft. Lbs. Before gasket is ruined may need to replace lower gaskets with the silicone ones as mentioned by previous member says. Start on the center nut and x pattern your way to the outside lube studs with antisieze and torque slowly if it feels like it will not torque to 17 ft. Lbs. Go for lower number 16,15 ft. Lbs. Even torque is better than overtorque. Best of luck to you.
