The gasket would be best if coated on both sides with Copper Coat spray gasket sealer. The pattern is to get them all in place, touching the head, then start in the center set of fasteners (front to back) and tighten them to 10 Ft pounds. then using an "X" pattern continue outward to the extremes. Repeat the pattern at 50 ft pounds, then 75, then 100, then final tightening. Button it up and adjust the valves. Put hi-tack gasket sealer on the cover side only of the VC gasket, this allows it to be removed easily. Get it running and allow it to stabilize in temp. (15 minutes) then retorque the fasteners and reset the valves to hot spec (it does not need to be way hot, could be able to hold your hand on it is fine, but not 60 degrees). Jim
