Page 3-26 of Chilton's reads:
14. Using no sealer whatsoever, install the new head gasket(s) to the block. Clean, dry and lightly oil all head bolts threads. Install the heads and install the head bolts.
Tighten head bolts in sequence to 50 ft. lbs. (68Nm). Repeat the sequence retightening the bolts to a final torque of 105 ft. lbs. (143 Nm) and repeat the second step to ensure that all bolts are accurately torqued.
torgue chart from chilton (page 3-11) for your engine and year show:
main bearing bolts 85 ft lbs
rod bearing bolts 45 ft lbs
crankshaft damper bolts 135 ft lbs
flywheel bolts 55 lbs

Since you didn't say which engine you have, I've pulled torque specs for 3 different engines. Also, since I can't include a diagram showing the relative locations of the numbered head-bolt locations, it would be a good idea for you to purchase a vehicle specific repair guide that will show this info.
Take particular note about the TTY (Torque to Yield) bolts used on 2 of the 3 engines shown. It is said that new head bolts MUST BE USED when head is replaced or re-installed to obtain the proper torque.
B2500 4 Cylinder
Torque sequence: --------- ' 10 6 2 4 8
' front ' ' ' 7 3 1 5 9 ' -----------Step 1: torque in sequence to 51
Ft/Lbs Step 2: torque again in sequence to 51 Ft/Lbs Step 3: final
tighten all bolts an additional 90 to 100 degrees recheck final
torque in sequence *** CAUTION ***engine uses Torque To Yield head
bolts (TTY) that permanently stretch during the initial installation.
New head bolts must be used when cylinder head is replaced or
re-installed to obtain proper torque.
B3000 3.0 6 Cylinder
Torque sequence ---------- ' 6 4 2 8 '
' ' ' 5 1 3 7 ' ---------- Step 1: torque to 59 Ft/Lbs Step 2: loosen
in sequence (1) full turn Step 3: torque to 41 Ft/Lbs Step 4: torque
to 73 Ft/Lbs
B4000 4.0 6 Cylinder
Torque sequence --------- ' 5 1 3 7 ' '
' ' 6 4 2 8 ' --------- Step 1: torque cylinder head bolts in
sequence to 26 Ft/Lbs Step 2: torque cylinder head bolts to 56 Ft/Lbs
Step 3: turn cylinder head bolts in sequence an additional 90-degrees
recheck final torque in sequence *** CAUTION ***engine uses Torque To
Yield head bolts (TTY) that permanently stretch during the initial
installation. New head bolts must be used when cylinder head is
replaced or re-installed to obtain proper torque.
Good luck with this job!
