Default LIM gasket replace I think !!!!!!!

I replaced the lim and used Permatex Red high Temp Silicone sealent on the lim bolts.

I have read where you shoule use blue threadlocker and where you shoule use a sealer.

I bought sealer and just made the mistake and used the Red Permatex I torqued the bolts and it has sat overnight.

Should I pull them, clean and use ????

Or is the Red fine.

Regards,
James

You'll be fine. As long as you put some type of sealant (RTV) on them you shouldn't have any issues.
