Yes you need an even torque to get a good seal the torque is 89inlb or 7.5ftlb. work from the centre out and rotate from end to end. make sure all old gasket has been removed and that both surfaces are clean and dry. Don't mickey mouse it or it will leak again.

No, but be careful not to overtighten - if you bend the tin it will leak forever.
