    Any information is very helpful. My first time doing this and just wasn't sure if it required a specified torque on the bolts. Planning on doing this on Tuesday of this week; gathering all materials needed for this task.

    Torque tight ie. little more than snug...overtighten, and you'll ruin gasket, and have to start over.
