Fuel bowl rebuild

I would like to reseal my fuel bowl later today and have permatex high temp thread sealant that I was going to use where required. I'm reading some things saying that it won't cure for over 24 hrs but see 72 hrs on the package. How long should I expect my truck to be down before it will be good to go without leaking for those of you who have used this? Is there anything better that will cure a lot faster?

There is nothing in the fuel bowl to use permatex on. It install o-rings and rubber sleeves. You need to order the kit from dieselorings.com

I bought my seal kit from dieselorings and in his instructions, it says to use diesel fuel rated thread sealant on all NPT threads

that might refer to the oring plugs on the rails and the hpop threads. Nothing on the fuel bowl though, needs sealant. the orings and parker sleeves take care of any leaks.

Sounds good. I posted this on PSN too and it seems like no sealant is the consensus. Thanks everyone for the replies

I was wrong. Blame the lack of sleep. I misread and thought you were gong to deal up leaks lol.

In his instructions, it shows where to use a sealant, I would probably follow them

Did you end up doing the rebuild yet? Just wondering how long it took you and if you have any additional tips or things you learned? I am doing mine today or tomorrow.

Yep, I did it yesterday, 4 times thinking I had a problem. The whole rebuild went easy, lacquer thinner was the key to removing the Stock PTFE inside. Where I thought I went wrong was when I would prime the bowl, my pressure would maintain 65 psi, and then it would drop once the pump cut off. I thought something was wrong so kept taking it apart to try to find the issue, but come to find out its supposed to do that. Realistically it shouldn't take much longer than an hour. I spent extra time on mine since it was so dirty, gross isn't even a strong enough word to describe how mine was. I've got 321K and I'm pretty sure this was the first time it was ever apart.
