To make it easier to follow, I'm re-numbering the bolts. Standing at the drivers side, beginning at the row on the passenger side, The row under the valve cover) consider the bolt #'s as 1234567 left to right (front to back). The numbers of the row closest to you in the same order then are 8 9 10 11 12 13 14. Use silicone sealant on bolt # 8.
Tighten in this order: 4, 11, 10, 3, 5, 12, 9, 2, 6, 13, 8, 1, 7, 14. Torque to 25 foot pounds first time around, then to 45 lbs, then last time around all are tightened to 110 foot lbs EXCEPT #8 which is set at 100.
though I have seen people re-use the original bolts, it is advisable to buy new ones, especially if the engine overheated.
best to draw yourself a quick diagram with my numbering and check off each number as you tighten it. You should have three check marks at each number when you are finished.
I generally use fel-pro blue gaskets as they don't need re-torquing after warm up.

Im replacing the head gasket what is the tourq and sequence for instillation

A torque specification is how tight you must make the bolt by using a torque wrench which measures the tightness you apply to the bolt, ensure you are using new head bolts, a reliable torque wrench, clean the threads of the cylinder head (with tap) where head bolts screw into and when installing bolts ensure they are properly lubricated. And the sequence is the order in which you tighten each bolt.

Need tourqe setting for head and intake bolts on 2000 land rover 4.0

Well, remembering that the head bolts are stretch bolts, which you tighten to 20nm (15lbf.ft) then turn 90 degrees, then a further 90 degrees :)
The inlet manifold you initially tighten them to 10Nm (7lbf.ft), then it says for the gasket clamp bolts you do those to 18Nm (13lbf.ft) and finally to 51Nm (38lbf.ft)

If your head is leaking water you will need to replace the gasket and have the head checked out. Tightening the bolts will not do any good. Has the engine been hot. How do you know your water leak is in the head...
