2E head torquing tightening sequence, how does it go?

Old man is wanting to know what sequence the head bolts should be torqued and tightened in.

I already know this

The 2E settings are :
Inlets - 0.20mm (0.008 thou)
Exhausts - 0.20mm (0.008 thou)
Clearances should be set when engine is HOT.

Head Bolt Torque:
Stage 1 - 22 ft-lb
Stage 2 - 36 ft-lb
Stage 3 - Put a dot of white paint on the head bolts at the 12 o'clock position and then turn the bolts 90 Degrees in a diagonal sequence.
The dots of paint will then be in the 3 o'clock position.

He's just wondering what sequence they should be tightened in.

Thanks in advance

Is it 2E (carburated) or 2E-E(injection) engine?

Metric is always helpful ;) It's the system I use!
