Thanks Plum. I could only find the thread by searching you name. (makes one appreciate the "intelligence" of google engines)
Anyway, sounds exactly like what mine is doing. I have pretty good 43 year old eyes, but can't make any useful sense out of that doggone oil window. I'll try draining a bit out, or emptying the darn thing and getting a measuring cup out to figure out how much .26 quarts is??? My wife yells at me for never using measuring cups or spoons when I cook, but my food turns out ok.
Thanks for the reply!
