Drainplug tool?

'66 230

Where do i source the special tool for the gas tank drain plug. Is this the same tool for the oil drainplug?

I used the search feature for the last half hour and it pretty much pulls up every thread ever...



Thanks ahead of time!

You don't necessarily need a special tool. I made one using the proper sized bolt long enough to put a couple of nuts on, then tighten them. Then use a box wrench on the middle bolt, or even an open end.

I think that one was a 47 mm, so I used something a bit larger than 1-3/5, which is about 45mm.

I drained one maybe 20 years ago, when large metric allen wrenches and such tools were dealer only or Germany only.

My plan was essentially the same.

Take a bolt with the same head size then take a cheap(broken most likely, they go hand in hand) 1/2 in drive socket and put it over the threaded end of the bolt and weld. Then again i could just go with the nuts on the threaded end...
