Replacing head gaskets chevy 350

OK so i am going to be replacing the head gaskets on my SBC 350 ive got the gaskets, and a new set of head bolts. what if any should i use for thread locker? Also I think the the correct torque for these is 65fpt but what is the torque sequence? BTW these are stock cast heads.

Thumbs up head gaskets

NO thread locker! thread anti-seize! check on torque to be sure but i think you are right-65/70 ft.lbs.. torque clockwise, center starting point; small circle to large. i like to torque about half way (all) then re-torque to specs. after a few miles recheck.

If the head bolts go into the water jacket, then you will need thread sealer on the bolts.
