LOL Rich that won't work unless he has a complete fuel system with fuel bowl delete.
I know, I plan on installing my AD2 real soon to eliminate my upper fuel filter. I would like to have a spare oil filter housing in hand ahead of time so I can grind down the cut off fuel filter arm, then put it on a lathe to really clean it up. This way I reduce my down time.

Let me see if I can find mine Rich. It already has the fuel filter can cut off. If I can find it you can have it.

Sat wondering last night if I indeed could cook something in that empty little canister. (I cook food on the engine skids at work all the time) But now this is like having a cool little oven. So Im gonna find a durable oven temp guage put it in their and see how hot does it get...

200* or so depending on engine oil temps. I would imagine that oil transfer block retains much of that heat...

Thats not a bad idea. Wrap the tools in a rag or somethin...worlds smallest tool chest. My son read this post last nite and started to laugh, said after doin the oil cooler and all the scrapes and bumps I should turn it into a first aid kit:tard:.

It still gets hot! I have an aluminum oil filter cap and that still gets too hot to touch without gloves. Funny that you started a thread on this because I'd considered the same thing. It almost looks like a can of soup would fit in there nicely. :hehe:
WARNING!! If you do heat a can of soup up on a motor you have to make a vent hole in the top! It makes a nice little Campbell soup bomb if you dont!:doh:
I know what your thinking,thats common since...no its not.New guys at work blow up soup cans quite often. And oddly enough the Old guys just let em.:rofl:

After thinking about this a bit more I kinda got to thinkin of those cheap Rambo knives we had back when I was a kid. You'd unscrew the never working compass and inside was couple fish hooks,some matches etc. So Im gonna biuld a truck Rambo canister. Thought a multi tool plyer (has a knife screw drivers cutters lil saw etc) Maybe a small dog bone wrench...extra key.....

It gets hot in there. Put a piece of cloth in the bottom to absorb some of the heat. With my sockets I can barely pull them out when towing. Trust me I blew a boot this spring and had to fix it. It did come in handy but they are hot!

Dude, that's a great idea! I never even thought about putting a small set of sockets and a ratchet in there. With the cloth in there, does it beat up the top of the oil manifold?
