Tooling for Type F Gearbox oil fill / drainplug

Hi,

As I tried to top up the Type F Gearbox from my recently acquired se6a today, I saw a set of oil fill / drainplugs
Who needed other tooling than I have in my motorcycle shop :)
A square sort of Allen key..

What is it named and what is the size?

Who can help me out?

Essex V6 front pulley(s) alignment SE6A

So every rotating part on your engine is individually balanced... Not together... (Would be nice, although.. But is rather expensive to do for a commercial car builder..)

Collective Head Scratch - Exhaust Wrap ?

I know, it is not the answer for your question, but.... Why on earth do you want to do that? I do sell a lot of This stuff in my motorcycle shop, and i mean.. Really a lot.... but...
