just torque them down where they're good and tight...you don't want the gasket to squish out....but do it in a pattern so that they all get torqued evenly....and snug them all in that pattern, then go back and tighten them down in the same pattern....i've never seen anyone use a torque wrench on that....you can, but to me that's to "by the book" for me....the pattern is as important as anything...do the left one on the front, then the right one on the back, then do the left one on the back, right one on the front, etc....work your way in....

thanks but I was looking for more than the guesstimation method.

guesstimation works dude Click the image to open in full size.
seriously....the pattern makes a huge difference....get them tight and bam...they're small, so don't break them....it's completely "not hard" at all

nope, its inch pounds....83 inch pounds, but when you do it do a patter with about 50 inch pounds first, then go the full amount... its just a good practice.

OH, and make sure to put beads of high temp PTF gasket stuff in the right angles were the cam is , and MAKE SURE to wipe all oil from both of the surfaces (both the head where the gasket will touch and the gasket itself) that might have been why you had the leak in the first place
