lube question

So I am working on getting my 42" snowblower back together form my JD 260. There is a tube on the back of the blower that holds the driveshaft in place with a grease fitting on it that has oil in it, and the oil in it looks pretty old. First should I clean out the old oil, and is there an easy way to do that, or should I just top it off as needed? Second what type of oil should I use in the drive shaft housing, and on the chain that it drives?

Never hurts to get new grease or oil into gearboxes....the question is whether it is oil or grease. If it has a zirk fitting, I'm guessing grease. The next question is how to get it out and put in new....I can't help ya there.
