Cam tensioner leak -750 (archive)

For those of you who have replaced the o ring on infamous the cam tensioner, a couple of questions.
1) Does orientation of the tensioner matter?
2) Is there a torque setting, or do you just load up the spring?
3) Do you need to bleed down or pump up system before removing or firing up?
4) Any upgraded materials? This is the third time mine has leaked (first time I will be doing the replacement).
5) Any other hints to make the job easier.
