Make sure you chase out the bolt holes for the oil pump cover. Previous owners/mechanics may have used Locktite to hold the bolts. Since the torque is only about 7lbs, any interference means the cover isn't seated..and will leak...again.

Actually, I think you should use some blue so the bolts stay in place.
