another 47 blower question

sorry, but another 47 question (the chest freezer one) ive greased everything, had new hoses made up, and next up is the gear box oil. So I'm going to pull the lowest plug, which isn't all the way at the bottom, and drain it, then I'm going to pull the top plug and fill it with the recommended cornhead grease. Do I fill it all the way to that top plug? Also, there was a plug I pulled on the auger, right in the middle, is that supposed to have anything in it as well? Thanks

80W90 unless your nursing failed seals. Cornhead grease is for a 49 rear gearbox. Cornhead would probably work fine in this application but if it was mine I'd use the factory fluid. A friend with a bolens 2 stage had his gearbox go out and couldn't find the shaft and told me how he'd fill it every use and it was still steaming hot when done. Cornhead grease fixed him up. You should have seen the smile when he said the gearbox stayed cold.
