Be sure to drain enough coolant out of the radiator to get the level below the top of the block. Don't ask how I know. Close to 10 years ago, I removed one weeping head bolt and reinserted it after putting sealer on the threads. No problems yet. For several bolts, I would get a new head gasket and start over. I've been known to be overly cautious about some things.
