First pass, torque them to 30 Ft Lbs working from the center outward. Then go back again and torque them to 75 Ft Lbs.

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.

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 '

B4000 4.0 6 Cylinder

' ' 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!
