He's a machinist mate...
if i recall right, don't the grommets have a steel insert? know the svt does. next time snug them with a nut driver, kinda hard to overdo it that way unless your really cranking on it. snug is the word. only place i know you do tight plus is torque to yield bolts, valve cover bolts definitely arent torque to yield. head to a parts store and get a new gasket set.
I've dealt with Karl on many occasions getting parts and spent alot of time on the phone with him about donations for ff1. can honestly say he's great to work with and gives a great deal of time for the ff community.

. gotta crawl under and see tomorrow.
