rtv takes 24 hours to fully cure.....if I let it cure for 12 and then put in tranny fluid, run it for less than a minute to put it on the trailer, will it still seal alright?

I went into the garage tonight to find a huge puddle under my heep:( , so I quick pulled the pan and did a new gasket....will it be set enough by morning to put fluid back in and put it on the trailer? I have to take it to the exhaust shop tomorrow.

or is there a way to speed up dry time?

either way I have to do it, I just want to know so if I have to pick up more rtv while I am out, I can...

Thanks!

once RTV skins up you can add fluid. the real dry time is more like 3-4 days. then you have a good seal. I have waited less then an hour to put fluid in engines with a fresh pan RTVed on. does a good job when its just engine oil. Trans fluid take a special kind or the stuff breaksdown to fast.
