Did you put teflon on the mounting bolts? Were are the leaks? Gasket misalignment is a suspect. I always use a thin coat of gasket adhesive on the inside face, followed by a thin coat on both the outside (facing the block) and on the block. Let that dry. Put another very thin coat on the gasket and then mount. Naturally, the gasket fix requires removal and remounting with a new gasket.
