I actually didn't use a torque wrench at all for the entire process. I used a small ratchet and that's all. But I was very very careful not to over tighten the valve cover. There is a moderate amount of resistance as you tighten the valve cover onto the gasket, but after a little bit of that it gets a lot harder to turn and that's where I stopped. Maybe 10 ft/lbs for torque? Maybe less?
