Fuel Pump Lock Nut, How Tight ?

I replaced the fuel pump on my 2001 Wj and it started leaking around the seal at the top of the fuel pump. I tightened it too much and kinked the seal. Since it is rare to have a torque wrench that can gage that procedure, what is a good rule of thumb for how tight is tight enough ?
