Check this every day for 3-4 days right after you've finished driving for the day, while keeping the engine running at idle. If there are no problems and no hints of a problem, then its a solid fix.

If you don't change the radiator, no problem. Whenever you bleed the radiator (flush the coolant once a year) then you'll just have to reapply the high temp clear/white silicone window sealant again. Removing the bleed screw ruptures the old sealant.
I do read your posts bobby, maybe you should? These quotes from your OP sure seem to imply that this could be a permanent fix. I didn't make that up, you said it. Just wanted to striaghten that out sonny.

I am quite sure that the only person entertained by your "hossanna" fest is you bobby. I personally am concerned for you..... yeah right.
