Leak of newly installed oil pan

Originally I had this posted in the 7.3 forum but I'm trying to come up with some addtional ideas. Yesterday I spent about 15 hours replacing my leaking oil pan on my 2000 F-350. The pan had actually rusted through, and was leaking about 1/2 quart per day. Anyway, after completing the job, I realized the sealent Ford sold me for the job was expired (Use by 01/07/07). I started the truck about 5 hours after placing in the oil pan. The "Test" bead of silicone I laid down had the consistency of playdough after 5 hours. The tube of silicone said you can operte the motor after 1 hour. I know for sue we laid a copious amount os sealer down, and got the pan all the way around. Now the oil pan is visibly leaking about one drip per second from the rear passenger side of the pan. I'm 100% sure it s the pan, and not from the top. I have had some great suggestions from the other forum, but I'm looking for as much advise as I can get. Any suggestions as to stop this leak before I rip the whole thing apart again?

Did you remove the engine and flip it upside down to do this procedure, or did you do something else?

Hope we can help...

Sorry not to elaborate, I pulled the tranny and pulled the motor up with an engine lift. The pan was installed while in the truck, and the machined edge on the block was prepped very well. Hope this sheds some light.
