I'd recommend that you just go buy the pint or more bottle of A/S desiccant as it will probably need changing every 2 to 4 weeks and it is handy to have extra to make blue in the oven over night. I kept my 360 engine for 5 years with desiccant spark plugs and exhaust pipe bottles installed. Upon tear down by Hageland Motors for a new crank under warranty the engine was rust free.
