Here is a link to the installation, service, and parts manual. if you notice Hayward does not specify any torques valves, mainly because the bolts do not require anything more than snug plus 1/16th-1/8th more force. If you are still getting leaks, it is most likely that the gasket, seal, or sealant, was not aligned correctly or it may have slipped during assembly, or the gasket or seals are faulty. These pumps are fairly straight forward for repairing, you just need to be very careful when re-assembling. It also helps to take some extra time and develop a bolt tightening pattern to evenly (without any movement) secure the bolts.
