They were done correctly....RTV silicone sealer, #2 Permatex, or Teflon pipe thread sealer on threads, and motor oil or anti-sieze under washer and bolt head.

Assuming this is the SBC you are working on....
Torque to factory spec (70 ft.lbs.) in the proper sequence, in at least 3 steps - i.e. 25 ft.lbs. then 50 ft.lbs. then final at 70 ft.lbs.
