what is this stuff? can i use something else that's more commonly available in its place? what do other worm drive gearboxes use?
I know from my jeeps and stick shift Dakota that they don't want standard 80w90 gear lube because it dies something to the syncros which are made of brass like the driven gear in this gearbox. GM and Mopar both call for Pennzoil synchromesh fluid which I have here.
I also have a bag of some sort of Tecumseh/peerless grease that came in a box lot from an auction, it's Tecumseh p/n 788067A.
What's THIS stuff??? When I found it in the box after I won it at the sale I wondered what if anything I'd ever use it for. It was in a box lot that I got for something else that was in there.
I also have a John Deere 828D walk behind that's built by ariens for Deere with what looks like the same cast iron gearbox as this ariens attachment that I am putting back together. So it wouldn't hurt to know what will work in there as I can probably use the same stuff in both down the road.
