My dad had a Mowhawk 4-foot brush mower that lost the lower seal in the gearbox. The local mechanic drilled the fill plug 1/8" NPT female to install a zerk fitting, and from then on we ran NLGI #2 red grease in the gearbox. I'm sure it wasn't as fuel efficient as the original 90-weight gear oil, but nothing wore out in the 30+ years we ran it that way!
