Oil or grease for wheel drive gears?

My Toro manual does not mention lubricating these, and on my old machine they're clearly worn and haven't been lubed in ages. What is correct to use? The same 10w40 they say to use most places? I tried searching here, but maybe the terms aren't correct.

I love that stuff, but would think there was a risk of overspray getting on the friction drive. I applied some synthetic grease with a flux brush.
