manual transmission drain plug

Thought I read that 17mm would be the right fit. So far 17, 19 are too small.
Also tried a 7/8. it came closer to fitting but still too small. Any suggestions Im out of wrench sizes. Could probably just use an adjustable but it doesnt have much room to turn.

Can't remember off the top of my head, I wouldn't use an adjustable, you can strip the head of the bolt if you do that.

Just cruised through the Chilton and I didn't see anything about the bolt size.

Yea I really dont want to even attempt with adjustable for that very reason. Hoping I can find one that fits.

I didnt see anything in Haynes either.

7/8 fits my plug no problem. Just changed fluid 3 days ago. Might want to check again.
