SOURCE: head bolts torque settings
According to my haynes manual for G-S reg, 1989-1998 it goes as follows,
Stage 1:- Tighten all bolts by hand until bolt heads just contact cyl. head.
Stage 2:-Tighten all bolts to 40Nm or 30lb ft.
Stage 3:-Angle tighten all bolts a further 60 degrees.
Stage 4:-Angle tighten all bolts again a further 60 degrees.
Stage 5:- M12 x 140mm bolts ONLY angle tighten a further 20 degrees.
Hope this helps everyone, sorry it seems longwinded but that is how it's written in the manual.

You should really go to an auto parts place and buy a manual. This something you really should not cut corners. It will give you the specs and the sequence of how to torque the head. You will also need to know how to set the timing in relation to the cam and crank. Manual is well worth the money. It has pictures, instructions, and such.
