It's A Good Thing I'm Not In A Hurry!

I had found a loose screw arcing against the coil the last time I used her (in the dark), but she ran. Gee, do you think this is why she was having trouble staying running at idle recently?
A quick repair with my last short bolt and she's running like a top again.
Now we're driving to the garage and the variator lever isn't speeding her up. I think she started this last winter and it went away when it got warm. Here we go, puttering to the garage...........
Now it's into the garage where I open that @#$*&^ oil drain spicket. Glaciers can be seen advancing and receding in the time it takes to drain the oil with this thing. Let's just say I have plenty of time to write this post.
I just checked the gear oil, which was changed at the last engine oil change, and it's foamy. How does water get into a gearbox that's always covered? As Rosanne Rosannadanna used to say on Saturday Night Live, it's always something!
