Contour valve cover HELP

I have a 96 contour valve cover. I got the spacer things that came with it and I got this gasket then I went to the store and go m10x25x1.0 bolts and it didn't work. When I put it on it was torqued down right and in the right order but it didn't seal right at all. It kinda sprayed oil every where under the hood. What did I do wrong?

I don't have pic's of it I took it off and cleaned it up being mad and didn't think to get pic's. But yes the gasket was seated properly, the O-ring things around the spacers are new an fit right.

The proper bolts for the Contour valve cover are the 6mm x 30mm x 1.0. Also when tightening down the bolts you need to go in a pattern from the inside and work your way to the outside bolts. Standard torque on it is 60 inch-lbs per bolt. That is about 5-7 ft-lbs if you don't have an inch-lb torque wrench.

I did the proper pattern an I have both types of torque wrenches I did 60 inch pounds an its 6mmx30x1.0 well that might be my problem then. But just to be clear this is going on my 2002 FoFo Zetec.
