Absolutely the best idea and use for a Folger's coffee container. I have been using them for three years. They work perfectly, last a decent amount of time and are easily available for replacement.I've found that the red Folgers coffee cans have a tight friction fit on the deuces, but still blow off easily when starting. I thought about painting them green, but this way I can find them in the grass.
I still haven't found the right size for the 5-ton stack.
That's dedication getting up in the middle of the night. I would have waited till the next morning and started it up to blow it out before covering it it were close. Mine is 100 miles away so I cover it before I leave each time. I just discovered the j pipe on my M54a2 has a hole in it, this was a fire department turn-in I got from a forestry sale. Guess I'm looking for a new pipe.
I like this idea, but for now i use a cut open milk jug, sucks though i have the tall friggin stack!I use a soft ball with a rbf flag attached to it (original F4 Phantom, to keep it mil ).
Also has a nice trajectory when it pops off, because a preoccupied driver forgets to remove it. .-)
Wouldn't that be 3.5"? That's what mine is on my M109.I forget occasionally to cap it so I'm going down to tractor supply and get a 4" flapper dealie, and be done with it. Just started the Deuce today and blew chunks, and had to rinse it off real quick, no harm, but the flapper's the ticket.
