Okay. The old style VRs had a special ground screw on the mounting leg, but 
they all came with the ground wire just installed under one of the mounting 
screws instead. That saved a couple of steps on the assembly line but I always 
use the separate ground screw whenever I replace a VR.

I guess this all means that I need to keep thinking about my solid state VR 
version, which would be built into an old style Bosch can.
