Lawn tractor transmission oil?


A relative just acquired a small riding mower. The manual transmission was apart and need a few small parts. He needs to know what oil/weight is needed before he closes it up?

If you go to the web site of the manufacture under specs it should tell you what they recommend since I have no clue as to who made it I cant steer you in that direction

Lawn tractor transmission oil?


Someone said that it may need grease (bentonite?)
If it is grease then how much should go in the gear box?
