The 1972 220D that I just purchased from the original owner came with a tool kit, which included this very allen wrench. I had already bought a 9/16" allen wrench, which would have required a small amount of filing down on all 6 faces to do the same job.
As someone posted a while back on another forum, be sure that you remove the "fill" plug first, before draining the oil. You wouldn't want to empty the differential, and then find that you cannot refill it. Use a piece of 3/4" galvanized pipe as a "cheater" to get enough leverage to turn the wrench.

You can probably also find a 14mm hex wrench at Sears or Orchard Supply, etc.

I tried everywhere to locate a 14mm allen socket, Sears, Napa you name it (but I didn't think about PartsShop on this one)they all had 12mm and 17mm but no 14's. I ended up getting mine through Snap-on. If you're unable to get one from any of the mentioned locales, you might try and see if your local shop can get one through Snap-on for you.
