So tonight I installed the head, put oil on the bolt threads, torqued it all down then I notice that there is oil on the head gasket between the head and block. I ASSume I put too much oil on the treads... Anybody had this issue? TIA

It could also not allow the gasket to seal well on the block side, know also you do not have a good value on that bolt for your torque pattern.
I personally would pull all the bolt, pull the gasket, clean it all up, then bolt it back together again. Making sure you clean all the bolt holes before doing the most important parts of the job, besides cleaning.
