Re: RTV drying time on oil pan
Hey, I warned you about that stuff , use it SPARINGLY !!! The Right Stuff from Permatex dries and cures fast enough that you can't possibly put that pan on and fill the engine with oil to make it leak unless it's below 60*F . Below that temp, be very careful as cure times go way up . BTW, here is a list of automotive chemicals I like to use:
The Right Stuff - Permatex
Sil-Glyde - Napa (all things rubber, hose connections and electrical in a pinch . Ever try to remove a heater hose from the heater core?)
Anti-seize - Permatex (use it on anything that may stick or gall , even the wife)
Copper Seal - Permatex (header gaskets , especially stock manifold gaskets to aftermarket headers)
Lock Tite - I use this stuff by the gallon , nothing of mine ever comes loose.
#5 gasket maker , or commonly referred to as Indain Shellac - also called " po'd and want to get even with another mechanic gunk" . This stuff comes off of nothing , and really doesn't seal anything worth a rip , it's only intended purpose is to aggravate mechanics . If you use this stuff on a Weber and send it to me for repairs I will drive to your house and beat your skull in with your own carb . I recently had to remove a 2BBL Holley with a 5lb sledge from a Chevy due to this crap....
