272 Y block Oil filter adapter kit

So I bought a oil filter adapter kit from D Carpenter for my 272, to allow me to install a spin on type filter, no instructions came with it.

Do I have to remove the original threaded unit out of the side of the block and then reinstall this new contraption, or is this supposed to just thread into the existing unit? After doing some internet searching I have seen this go both ways, none were a clear example of a 272.

If I do have to remove it, is there a trick to it, it is a very shallow bolt head and the socket just wants to strip off?

Thanks in advance if anyone else has done this on theirs and may have some insight.

All Y blocks = first you will have to grind off the bevel on the socket so it
is flat for this rather thin hex, thats about it, make sure its perfectly clean
"0" ring must be a perfect fit and make sure the drain is top it should be
stamped "top" check for leaks last one I did came from Napa.
