It's been awhile but not very tight, MAYBE 15-20. Someone with more definitive answers will be along soon. Sadly many of the push rod covers on the 223s leak regardless of having a new gasket.

My shop manual list 8-10 ftlbs on the oil pan but nothing on the sidecover.

I would add a thin coat of RTV to w\each side of the gasket.

Honestly, I did away with my gasket. The newer Felpro gaskets just doesn't seem to fit the shape of the casting and cover. I used a gasket maker sealant and did away with the felpro. Also, watch the grommets that the bolts go through, the newer ones are a little different shape than the originals, again a little sealant helps. Good luck.

Congrats! I love the 223s but the oil leaks they have can be frustrating.
