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?

Keep in mind that free advice can frequently be worth less than you pay for it.

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.
