NO THEY WON"T! it's the same box for over 30 years. and i tried, it cost me a set of seals dead winter . care to do a set in a unheated garage in jan? that's called the school of hard knocks!!

right from the shop manual

Carefully let the snowthrower down on its normal
position. Make sure it is on a level surface. Next,
full the auger gear box with GL-5 or GL-6 SAE
85-95 EP transmission oil to the point of overflow. NOTE EP GL5 or Gl6 only,

darn near, only difference today is they have a metal gasket between the 1/2's otherwise many almost all of the main inners and seals still have the same part number,
how do i know? , i took the time to look it up in toro.com my old 1988 624 against my 2017 928,
both still say about 4 ounces of EP/ extreme pressure gl 5 or gl6 gear oil just todays states 90w ep in place of 85-95 ep

Well you know the enginers have to have something to do to fill there day oot. the old schools run a cork gasket, the POWERSHIFTS use HYLOMAR, so I would guess something new would have to come along.

Can someone explain how the auger shaft oil seals on both sides of the gear box casing? I removed the old oil seal and bushings in one half of the gear box but the new replacement oil seal fits snugly but appears as though it could pop out after a period of runtime.

It is a pressed in fit. they will not pop out if installed right. The Lip of the seal that rides on the shaft is what wears down over a period of time. from Use, temps and crap that gets trapped up it there. as for the certain design on how they make the seal and what is used in and how it is made. I have no BLOODY Clue what so ever. that might be a X-FILE Secret only known to a very few people. Hope this answered your question. otherwise if not than just CALL ME OOT HERE if you need anymore help in this subject matter at Hand.

sealers have gotten so much better over the last few years, i have repaired motors that had long leaked from warped parts that no longer leak thanks to the newer sealers, yes it did teach this old dog some new tricks.
I agree . had a Honda HS622 leaking from axle seal. bought the best selling stop leak on amazon and followed direction to a T. it stopped the leak and did not leak the rest of winter ( as far as I knew ) did this for a friend.
