Make sure you tighten the valve lash lock nuts more than the valve cover bolts!

The valve cover bolts don't need much torque, generally about 1/4 turn once they stop moving easily. I use a ratchet and one finger but try to stay around the 1/4 turn.

I torque the lock nuts down about the same 1/4 turn after they stop moving easily, maybe a little less.
