cyborg Picked up the gasket. Didn't installed yet. I have re-tightened all the bolts. I just monitored for the time being. So far, no oil leak on my mat.

Yup.My Allis started leaking one day and it's supposed to use a "special" gear oil. I said to self,"Self,there's nothing in that gearbox that ain't in an Ariens ST824 gearbox,and those come from the factory with "00" grease in 'em."So guess what self put in the Allis's gearbox?Do I think I'm causing any harm to it?No.

Kiss4aFrog As mentioned above where is it leaking from ?? Have you checked the level according to the manual to make sure it's not overfilled ??

Doesn't take much to look like a big leak and make a mess. NLGI "00" grease is almost an oil as it will flow and it's used predominantly in riding mower gear transmissions as it works well in all temperatures. It is a bit of a life hack if your manufacturer is calling for 85-95 gear oil but it can easily protect your gears and also stop or slow a leak without disassembling your auger and gearbox to replace seals.

I don't know the impact of too much oil in these, my machines do specify the grease, so that is what I have used.
