Would like to state the cylinder head Torque Values, Torque Pattern, and Tightening Sequence, plus additional tips.
[I know it's more than you asked for, but after you read the entire answer here, I believe you'll know why I stated it this way]
Top of head starting from Left going Right,
8, 4, 1, 5, and 9
Bottom of head, (Exhaust manifold side), starting from Left going Right,
7, 3, 6, 2, and 10
You're supposed to use old bolts with the head cut off, (Alignment Dowels), in bolt holes 8 and 10. This way you goop the gasket, and install it, then slide the head on. Place the head bolts in, SNUG them down. Remove those alignment dowels. Then put bolts 8 and 10 in place.
After the head of the bolt is cut off, you saw a slot in the top of the bolt. Helps when you remove it. (Have any old bolts that are long enough for this, and have the correct threads?)
=>Coat No.7 bolt with thread sealant.
Step 1: Tighten all bolts to 22 Foot Pounds. (30Nm) (Using the above Torque Pattern)
Step 2: Tighten all bolts to 45 Foot Pounds. (61NM)
Step 3: Tighten 1 Through 6 <- to 110 Foot Pounds. (149Nm) DO NOT TIGHTEN No.7 bolt yet!
Step 4: Tighten No.7 bolt to 100 Foot Pounds. (136Nm) DO NOT TIGHTEN further! It only tightens to 100 Ft.Lbs. (136Nm)
Step 5: Tighten bolt 8 Through 10 to 110 Foot Pounds. (149Nm)
Step 6: Repeat Steps 3 , 4, and 5

Please don't forget to rate....thanks:
CAUTION During the final tightening sequence, bolt No.11 will be tightened to a lower torque than the rest of the bolts. DO NOT over tighten bolt No.11.

HEAD TIGHTEN SEQUENCE - standing at front of car bolts down left side are 8/4/1/5/9 bolts down right side are 7/3/2/6/10. left side meaning distributor side.

Fig. 17: Cylinder head bolt torque sequence (click over pic for zoom)
Apply sealing compound only to the cylinder head gasket. Do not allow sealing compound to enter the cylinder bore.
Install the cylinder head and bolts. The threads of bolt No. 11 must be coated with Loctite® 592 sealant before installation. Tighten the bolts in 3 steps, using the correct sequence:
Tighten all bolts to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm).
Tighten all bolts to 45 ft. lbs. (61 Nm).
Retighten all bolts to 45 ft. lbs. (61 Nm).
Tighten bolts 1 through 10 in sequence to 110 ft. lbs. (150 Nm).
Tighten bolt 11 to 100 ft. lbs. (136 Nm)
Tighten bolts 12 through 14 to 110 ft. lbs. (150 Nm)
Hope this helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).
