Default Banjo Bolt how tight

So lately i was dealing with a p0021 code so i decided to take out my ocv solenoid and clean the heck out of it along with the banjo bolt that sits right next to it.

Now so far check light has been gone been riding for 50 miles and still clear. Now my problem is an oil leak around the banjo bolt area.

My Question is how tight am i suppose to tighten that bolt or is it suppose to sit in a certain position for proper oil flow through that hole? Dont want anymore oil blockage or starvation.

You tighten it enough to crush the washer just like an oil drain plug. Position doesn't matter.

If you're throwing codes... you have bigger problems.
