Do you think you will need to take to cowl out again to empty the can?
It's possible it will fit without the tab being cut off, but it would probably require alot of adjusting of the hoses to get it to land in just the right spot. And even then I think the tab would be putting some amount of pressure on the hose.
I am hoping I will be able to fit my hand in there to remove the bottom can, but I am sure it will be very difficult, especially when it is full of oil. Removing the cowl isn't that bad, but I would worry that the screw threads are not made to handle the constant in and out.
