New Rutland Installed...question.

Just installed my new Rutland gasket tonight. I wanted to wait until temps hit 70 degrees consistently, but this cool spring isn't cooperating. Installation was easy. I used permatex ultra copper for the adhesive.

Temp was about 55 degrees when I installed the gasket. The tube says 24 hour cure time at 70 degrees, longer in cooler temps. Anybody have thoughts on how much longer?

    I have no clue but I would wait 48 to be safe.

    I know a lot of people have built a small fire @ 250* for a couple hours to cure in temps like this but like you I have been waiting.  It's 37 degrees and raining for me right now.

    As of last week I have them on all four of mine.  The small was the last to get one and it was 45* here in NE when it was installed.  I let it set three days and I've got a small Hormel pork loin on as we speak.  Three days was plenty at that temp.  It set up and works/looks as good as the ones I've done in the summer.

    @chubbs, that's what I was thinking. 48 hours without egged food...I'll starve!

    @BOWHUNR is about 60 miles from me so I guess there is your answer.

    No experience on an egg - but have done a few on my woodstove, temp in that room is never over 60F unless the fire is on and it can't be on until it sets. 
    After 48 hours it is set and I always light a small fire, kindling only. After 60 hours it is good to go.
