craftsman 247.883700 sealed gearbox ?

Just picked up a used craftsman 26 inch with 8hp Briggs & Stratton from my local hardware store since he installed the new engine and belts I asked about lubricating the gear box he said this unit had no fittings to do so since I had no owners manual given with machine I downloaded one from the sears site to see what preventative maintenance I should do all it says is to flip machine forward I can remove cover on bottom to lubricate the hex shaft, remove shear pins to lubricate rake shaft and lubricate wheels nothing mentioned about gear box any comments or feedback appreciated
