How Much Loctite on Head Bolt #11

Got my head on yesterday and almost done with my manifolds today. Since it's been a long time that I've done any engine work to this degree in between I research the next steps online. I have a Chiltons, but sometimes feel it lacks detail. Like how much Loctite to apply onto bolt #11 for a good seal. I applied just enough to cover all the threads, but not any further up the bolt. To tell you the truth I applied and really didn't think about it to much until I saw a guy *online that has it slightly oozing out from under the head of the bolt. Did I not put enough? Should I yank it and reapply now that everything else is torqued to spec? Or not worry about it?

* see 06:20 in this video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X5HvYRcaL7c

You used a thread sealant? Right? Sounds like you used enough. And that bolt only gets torqued to 100 ft/lbs. 110 ft/lbs on the rest.
Morris 4x4 has repair manuals on there website. http://www.morris4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm
