According to GM Shop manuals Cylinder Head Bolt torque is 60-70 ft-lbs. I have found that if you follow the procedure to progressively increase torque in 20 ft-lb increments as you follow the torque sequence you will properly seat/seal the head gaskets. This is true with either steel shim or "sandwich" gaskets. I also re-torque the bolts one additional time within a half hour after I have set the total torque.

305 heads of course, 350 heads will fit for sure and possibly 400. obviously no big block heads will fit. a 305 with 400 heads gets you a little over 352. 350 with 400 heads is a 383. add and divide
