well, I found one of the oil leaks

While installing the alternator, I went to go hang my worklight on
one of the oil cooler lines. It moves when I bump it.  "What the?"

I look up...this is the line that has been dripping at the fitting.

Reach up...it wiggles substantially side to side, and as I wiggle it,
a nice big drop of oil comes off the fitting.  Loooovely.  I reach up
and I'm able to turn it tight, finger tight, -quite- a bit.

-Yikes-.  It's getting tightened soon as I figure out what tool will
work best, and soon as the car's off the ramps, I'm checking the oil
level again.  I can imagine what could have happened if it had opened
up even more while I was going up to/at/coming back from the WDS.
It's not pretty...
