Go to Harbor Freight

And get the breaker bar

Get the allen sockets

Check to see if they have the size you need. And really get into the breaker bar. They can really be stuck. MAKE SURE YOU RELEASE THE FILL PLUG FIRST. You don't want to drain everthing and then find out you can't fill it.

I could also recommend the 500 FtLb impact wrench they have, but do you have a compressor and would the impact wrench fit into the available space???

Also consider the breaker bar ( or allen wrench) and a piece of black pipe that will go over the BB/allen wrench that would extend the leverage and help you.

Again loosen the fill plug first
