What are the torque settings and sequence for tightening head bolts on a land rover range 4.0 v8?

The torque settings are 40 to 45lb/ft for the outer row, 65 to 70 for the centre to inner row. Haynes (Methuen & Coomber 1999) doesn't specify any particular order for refitting the head bolts; follow the standard automotive practice of tightening the ones furthest apart and moving inwards.
