Basically, you need to make sure that the mating surfaces are cleaned before fitting the gaskets, which can be done with a non-abrasive Scotch-Brite pad. If sealing has been an issue, you can also spray the gaskets with copper coat, prior to installation. This aside, tighten the bolts to the following torque setting and sequence. 
 
First Pass: 15 N·m (11 lb ft)
Final Pass:  20 N·m (15 lb ft)
Order in which bolts are to be tightened: 6-3-1-2-4-5
