Sump Plug

Hey all, what size bit do I need for the Oil Drain Plug, or Sump Plug as the manual calls it.

I'll be changing the oil and oil filter on my 'Bird and I need to buy one because the only thing that I have that fits is an allen wrench. I'm thinking I shouldn't use that for the plug. Although I don't see why I couldn't.

Anyway, your help is appreciated.
