I pushed this update out from WSUS server and I have it set to auto download but not to auto install. Can I change that setting to force an install and a reboot , after the fact ?

Changes to the way updates are installed are not done on the WSUS server, but in the policies set on the clients.  You can use group policies to configure the behaviour of automatic updates:
http://www.cites.illinois.edu/wsus/clientinstall.html

On the WSUS server you must have the status of the update set to "Install" for the WSUS group of computers that you want it to install on, or "All Computers" if you want every PC using the WSUS server to install it.

I you are using Active Drectory, the way WSUS updates are set, is done through a GPO.  DO you have a GPO configured for WSUS clients?

I have had a look at that and have made a few changes to my GPO called "WSUS". I had it set for "download and notify", now I have it set for "downlaod and schedule install" time set for 03:00

now run a gpupdate /target:computer /Force /boot to update the policy on your workstations.
