Common problem, make sure you've got water pump gasket, water pump o-ring, valve cover gasket and exhaust gasket as well.

370 or 3.74 engine?
Valve clearance is the same .006"-.010"
The flywheel is marked for TDC of 1,2 and 3 cylinders. #1 cylinder is the flywheel end.
head bolt torque is different.
3.74 - 27.5-30.4' lbs
370 - 39.8-42.7' lbs

Torque it down in increments starting in the middle and criss-crossing
