...18mm deep socket and turn down the outside. It doesn`t need to be as strong as one you can buy; after all, the torque spec is 23 Nm, or 17 ft-lbs. I stuck a piece of rigid foam in my socket to hold the plug in place. Be sure to use anti sieze on the threads. I`ll send you one ready to use for $10 plus $3.50 shipping.
