Question Whipple oil change?

I'm needed to change the oil in my 3.3 Whipple, can someone tell me what size hex & maybe a trick for getting at the drain plug? It's not in the most accessible location. Thanks.

Can you not pull it out through the top?

If you have the plug that takes an allen wrench, I believe it is a 10mm. We have a stubby allen wrench set that works great. You can also cut down a regular wrench. We use a piece of cardboard as a makeshift funnel to direct the oil to a cup. It only holds a few ounces. You can fill it back up with Castrol Syntec 5W50.
