Ariens 921022 differential - lubrication?

I have an Ariens Deluxe 28 model 921022. It has the squeeze handle which disengages the left drive wheel when it's squeezed, then re-engages it when released (for easier turning). The cable is connected to a differential.

My question: does the differential need lubrication and if so, what lubricant?

There is nothing in the owner's manual and I have found nothing with an online search. I lube the chain, gears and gearshift with white lithium grease. But the differential is pristine clean so didn't want to try lubing and create a problem.

Does anyone know for sure?
