1992 300Ce cylinder head torque...techs please help

Hello...I am installing the cylinder head that I just got back from the machine shop for a valve job/guides/surfacing etc. My W124 book for my M104 24 valve engine says that in torquing the head to do the following..
1.Torque all head bolts(14) to 55Nm
2.Using a wrench turn...tighten head bolts 1 to 10.. 90 degrees
3.using a wrench turn...tighten head bolts 1 to 10.. 90 degrees
Is this correct? Are they saying that head bolts 11 to 14 stay at the original torque value in step 1?? Please advise/help!

Also what is the correct way to adjust the timing chain tensioner?
When I installed it the chain is VERY tight.What is the correct way to adjust the allen head?
Hopefully a tech or techs that have done this job task can provide me with a answer.Im hoping to get it running this weekend.
Thanks for your time
