Hello Bond007,

10 ft lbs, from memory, certainly not very tight. Replace the copper washers if you haven't already and look for cracks in the cover in case they have been overtightened in the past? I normally use a smear of Hylomar to one face, as much to keep the gasket in position rather than as a sealer.
