What size of Allen key fits the gearbox plug in a 1256 box?

I have a box of universal plug removal tools which fit in a standard socket. They weren't expensive and I'm sure that there will be one in there that fits.

Thanks, I think it is 14 or 15 km but will get that set you suggested.

I assume you mean 14 or 15mm. It definitely won't be metric. The set I've posted a link to will have both metric and imperial ones in it.
