RTV question

Anyone know what the absolute lowest temperature is for the application of standard red RTV? From some research I have come up with 77F, but that is not going to happen. The temperature plummeted and I ran into some trouble removing the manifold cover, which is where the rtv is going.

indoors is not an option. I always check the weather but impulsively I decided I needed to deal with the gasket.

Not sure if this post is where it should be,

Manifold cover?

I'm assuming you mean valve cover, in that case use a gasket. If not then run the item to operating temp, then shut down and apply the rtv. If that's not an option just use rtv as a temp fix and do it correctly in better weather.

I read all the data but they only give performance specs on cured at 75 for 5 days. Seattle YJ has your solution until you get it somewhere warm to get it to cure.
