Default 3.0ltr KZN185 Tork/Torque settings on head bolts

Hi

Just bought a new head from ebay 400 to the door and I'm in the middle of fitting it but I cant find my Surf bible its all straight forward so far but I need to know how tight I should tighten the head bolts.
I did think of using the colour tork settings technique but since I've paid out so much I best do it properly,
So do any of you know the correct torque/tork settings for head bolts on a KZ1-TE 3.0Ltr engine in my 3rd Gen surf,
Thanx
Pony

They don't use torque as a final setting they are angular
on the 2.4, it's a torque nip of 56 mn? then two pulls @ 90 degrees,
I used tippex, on bolt head and cylinder head, but i'm not sure on
the 3.0l sorry.

If i've read it right, Cylinder head bolts = 400kg-cm, 29ft-lb, 39Nm.

It then says to tighten a further 90 degree's on each bolt in sequence and then a further 90 degree's again, each bolt in sequence.
