Auger Gearbox 918-06060 question

Hello everyone,

I've gotten so much information from this website just by lurking for years. Well it finally happened, I can't find the information I need.

Snowblower: Craftsman 28" 247-888740

Auger Gearbox: 918-06060

This gearbox has no fill plug, I recently had the worm shaft bearing retainer bend on me throwing the whole auger setup out of whack. Needless to say I need to rebuild the gearbox.

What I'm trying to find out is: 1) What oil should be used in the gearbox (I have read to use "00" grease, just want to double check), and 2) How much oil should I put in the gearbox?

Thanks in advance!

Yes, I just rebuilt one and I used the "00" grease.

I would put in as much as you can.

Curious, were your augers rust welded? Many are.
