Re: [DML] Oil plug

Corey - 
It is an 8mm square key stock hole.  There is a snap on socket for it,  or 
you can get someone to weld up something for you.  I tried to make one  this 
winter but it didn't work. The problem was, I was able to find key stock  that 
fit ok, but in order for it to be soft enough to bend into a 90 deg angle,  it 
was also soft that it bent as I tried to get the plug out.  So I just  bought 
the right tool for the job. PJ Grady has it.

What  kind and size of wrench is it that is used to remove the oil plug?  I  
know it is an 
odd male ended wrench, but I don't have one of these.   What size should I 
look for at 
the store?  Also, does anyone know of  a standard everyday plug that fits the 
car so in 
the future when I have to  change the oil I don't have to spend an hour 
looking for that 
damn odd  male ended wrench?
