If you have a vehicle application for the motor you can get a Haynes or Chilton manual from your local auto parts store. They usual run around $30.

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,
