You say "leaking out from around the bolts". Is that all the bolts or just a couple? If it's around all the bolts likely thye are not tight enough. But you have to be careful here. Without a proper torque wrnech it's easy to strip out the casing and they you have a bigger problem. In my experience folks who don't do much mechanical work tend to tighten things too much.
If you didn't replace the gasket that is probably the problem and you should head that direction. Gzood on you to attempt the doo replacement. How did you torque the rotor bolt?
