40 dollar powersmart

I just purchased a 40 dollar powersmart from a neighbor model db7659-22 208cc engine. The unit has been outside for its 3 yrs with a cover on it. The unit wasn't running and a little rust nothing to cry about. The carb needed cleaning it was not that bad I have seen worse and just needed a wire-brush, grease and oil where needed it is shifting fine now 4 forward and 2 reverse. I have been trying to lookup the gear oil and can't seem to find it I have 80-90 both conventional and synthetic I don't want to jump the gun and put it in when it may need 00 so if anyone could help and tell me what one to use I would be grateful.... Thanks, Dave

I have been using the 75W140 gear oil in the cast gearboxes, and the "00" grease in the aluminum clamshell ones. Strictly my way, others may do differently for sure.

You have to make sure, if you use gear oil, that it's compatible with yellow metals (Brass). I think the spec is GL4.

I called powersmart and the kid on the phone said to use white lithium grease. I gonna go with 00 it's not cast iron so I'm sure it will do.
