Lubfiplate No 630-AA alternative for Craftsman 536 886540

Hi folks I have an old Craftsman Snowblower 536 886540 that the user manual says requires "Lubfiplate No 630-AA" for the gear case, I tried the usual 70/90 gear oil and it leaked thru, so I am assuming this might be a lot thicker, in fact a grease rather than an oil.

Yes, your factory fill would be a NLGI No.1 grease which is very common among manufacturers for the auger gear box. I like to use the Lubriplate GR132 No.1 which most auto parts store (NAPA) can order in 16oz. tub.

JD Cornhead Grease, what a name!, thanks. I was starting to think maybe just Lithium grease would do it. I'll see if I can find some locally (hate to order doubles the price) or some Lubriplate GR132 No.1

Thanks
