Need Torque Specs for Manifold

I'm replacing the manifold and turbo on my 1586 and I need to know how tight to get the nuts. The service manual I have says for 7/16 studs to get them between 35-38 ft/lb for no gaskets but doesn't have anything listed for something with gaskets. Thanks in advance!

There were metal gaskets between the manifold and head when I took it off. I'm assuming it came from the factory that way because i from the looks of the tractor the previous owners did not take any pains in repairing and replacing parts on it.

I guess I've never seen one yet with gaskets that didn't leak. I'd leave them off, mill the manifold flat if need be, but gaskets cause leaks when it pertains to exhaust manifolds.
