Sealing Up Valve Covers?

Doe's any one no when puting back valve covers on 2002 7.3 do you need to use any sealant on valve covers or the gasket, & how tight to you make the bolts.

No sealant necessary, and I believe covers are 97 inch pounds. Just dont go too tight and bend it with depression at bolt.

correct, no sealant. and I dont know about torquing them. I go just snug, and about 1/2 turn or a little more to tighten them.
