Default Valve cover torque specs

I'm away from my service manuals right now and was hoping someone could look up for me what the correct torque specs are for the valve covers. I replaced both gaskets and have a leak from the rear cover...I'm thinking it'* either too tight or too loose and wanted to get that corrected over lunch.

Thanks,
Corey
