i saw the pick and thought to myself"man that oil dosent look right" i was hopeing it was just water left over from pressure washing the tranny and skid. you are probably all right. since the water didnt seperate from the oil i dought it did much damage. if when you pull the drain plug and a lot of clear or rusty water runs out and then the oil ,then be afraid!.. i spent a while reading thru water in my manual tranny threads and most say just out in cheap gear oil or motor oil and run it till it warms up and do it again 3 times. since you cant do that i would just get the cheapest auto tranny fluid i could find and flush it with that a few times. i would be hesitant to use solvent or thinner or even alcohol(alcolhol would be great for water removal) due to seal damage. once your done with the build ,drain the last auto tranny fluid out(keep it in there while it sets to keep rust out) then add cheap gear oil and change it soon. then to a better grade and you should be good to go.
