Changed oil yesterday. Was simple project, however previous owner, or maybe their mechanic obviously used open end wrench, or wrong size, etc, and the edges are rounding off. Should be a 17mm I believe, but it doesn't grab corners of bolt to remove, it just slips. Ended up having to use a 16mm and tap it on with a hammer, lightly enough to not damage bolt housing. It came off, but when I change oil next, I'd like too replace with a new, better condition plug and a new o-ring. I could use the 16mm again, but it's not my preferred way to go. Can't find anything on Ebay that I thought reasonable, since they nail ya with shipping after buying a $35 part, thought maybe someone knew of a source, or maybe has a spare or two in decent shape. Any info is helpful, I'm good for this season, and if I have to resort to the 16mm next year instead of being ravaged, so be it. lol. Thanks!
