Post Fuel Bowl rebuild Question

I finished rebuilding the fuel bowl and reinstalled last night. I have 2 questions about it after starting it back up.

1st: it smoked like I have never seen before. terrible bad. cleared up after a few minutes, but it rolled a lot of white smoke. I'm hoping this was just due to the air that inevitably got in the lines? No smoke at all this morning when I started it tho

2nd: How soon would a leak show up if it was leaking? I cycled it 5 or 6 times and no leak. Idled for about 10 minutes and no leak. drove it around a country block and no leak. Fair enough to say it's leak free?

Again, thanks for the help with the last couple threads on this guys

the air is probably the cause of the hard start and smoke.

Well all the way home I smell fuel. I get home and sure enough. Fuel in the valley. The entire perimeter of the fuel bowl cap was wet and I tightened it a decent amount. Ive never as long as ive had the Excursion had a leak there. I use the napa fuel filter/lid combo with the gasket that isnt directional. Hopefully if something under the cap is leaking it wouldnt be wet all around the lid.... but nothing on my way to work. I did let it warm up for 14 minutes beforeil I left work

That happens to me every dang time I change the filter. Takes a couple loosen and retighten the lid to seal the gasket. Last time I used a real thin layer of grease with my finger on the gasket to keep it from rolling.

Explains my issues. Lol. I haven't had to change filters yet, but the next two are from Bob Riley sitting in the storage cabinet.
