Question about 1999 GMC Sonoma
The tightness on the clutch cover bolts is to go around three times,3/8th rachet and pinch up ,pinch ,then go over them again with another pull at bit more than the pinch then check them for the third time again ,this is because the clutch cover sits on dowels and even if you pull them down with a torque wrench they can still work loose if the cover hasnt pulled down over the dowels ,its sort of experiance that counts here you get to know the feel of the thing pulling down ,just tightening once with a torque wrench doesnt mean its correct .

The haynes book is not recommended since there are numerous mistakes and they still will not update. One of the biggest is the firing order.
The factory service manual is the only way to go.
Head bolts - 46 - 50.5 lbs (there is an order sequence for the bolts)
Intake & exhuast manifolds- 13.5 - 20 lbs
Flywheel - 41.5 - 47 lbs
Clutch cover - 13.5 - 20 lbs

SOURCE: Head bolt torque specs?
I really really really hope you turned the bolts an additional 90 degrees after torquing to 22 Ft-lbs. Otherwise, you may be taking that head off again.
Best of luck,
