Oh Wondrous Mavens of MOWOG,

  As part of the wintertime freshening of my recently acquired '70 
Midget, I am planning to drain and re-fill the axle.  I am perplexed, 
hewever, by the bizarre drain and filler plugs in the diff housing.  
I have no tool which will fit in the odd recessed square hole.  What 
do I buy?  And where can I get it?

Additionally, has anyone had any good leck with synthetic lubes in 
their axles?  I've used Mobil 1 in engines with good results but 
never in an axle or tranny.  Should I go with Redline?  (Leaning that 
way now.)

Thanks in advance,
