gear oil for a 1994 troy bilt 21"

Hi all, new to this forum. I have a 1994 Troy Bilt model snow thrower two stage that I obtained. It is in showroom condition. I was doing preseason maintenance on it and want to drain and refill the gear oil. My question is it calls for 90W gear oil. I can't find it anywhere. Any ideas where or what is an acceptable substitute? Thanks.

Any auto parts store. Get one with a multable grade, so it will flow better in the cold weather.

Welcome to the forum

They are recommending a GL4, NOT a GL5.
Or , , A GL-5 that specifically states that it "protects against heat and corrosion of brass and copper".

.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!
