dumb oil plug question

i bought the oil change kit from ricambi which came with a drain plug. here's the dumb part: what kind of tool fits this plug? it looks like a hex shaped hole. i dont think i have ever seen such a large hex head tool required for this plug... do i need a special tool or do i use a ratchet without the removable socket in place?

John, IIRC it's a large metric Allen wrench that fits the plug. I'm 700 miles away from home so I cannot tell you the exact size. Sorry.

You need a Hex Bit Socket. 12mm I believe, but I wouldn't swear to it.

If you don't have a hex bit, find a bolt that fits and stick it halfway into the plug and halfway into the wrench socket.


The bad news: Time flies
The good news: I'm the pilot
