I don't know the torque specs for around the gasket but there are roughly 6 or 8 bolts for the gasket cover (its been a while). I recommend you tighten them in a counter opposing motion whereby you tighten one end a little a then another end a little. This way you get an even seal.

Feel free to shoot me a message or post on here if you have a problem.

Best of luck!!!
