Many of those little lawn mower transmissions are packed with a light grease when new. Might pay to use something like corn head grease, thin enough to flow , yet not prone to leak too much.
Yes, corn head grease is what I re filled my John Deere 111 with a few years ago when I had it apart to replace an axle. This was a 5 speed Peerless transmission. It has worked well ever since.
I'd bet a couple cans of brake cleaner would make a noticeable difference. Just need to get it tipped up, or have a place to drain off to.
MTD transmission lube
I need to know what kind of lubrication that I should be using in this transmission. When I took it apart it had a real soft looking grease. I have talked to two different persons about this. One said to use a regular grease and the other said to use a regular 60-80W gear oil. The last person said that the grease was a result of the gear oil breaking down. I have seen gear oil break down but not to the extent where the whole case was full of nothing but grease.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
Gear oil, mixed with even a little water, emulsifies and the result is something that looks like light grease.
The transmission that you have is greased. It is factory filled with approximately 32 oz. of Shell Darina grease. The parts in this transmission are designed to use and perform properly with this grease.
I thank you for all your help.
Well this is just for informational purposes and I would recommend always checking the manual or contacting the manufacture to make sure that you are using the right stuff when repairing your equipment. I have received all kinds of wrong advice even from repair shops that where suppose to be MTD certificied.
Well thanks again everyone.
The reason why EP 2 grease or general grease does not work is because under high pressure and heat that kind of grease thickens up too much and then will not lubricate the gears. The EP 0 grease, which is something like really thick oil, has the ability to stay soft enough under high heat and keep the gears lubricated.

The bolt that holds the differential gears together broke and busted up the aluminum case. I was able to come up with a grade 8 bolt that I cut down lengthwise to fit, that works well thanks to mownie for suggesting I use a grade 8 bolt. I also patched up the case with JB weld, aluminum scrap and fiberglass. I cleaned out much of the existing grease that was in there except for inside the differential.
I didn't take the steel cover off the differential partly because there isn't a parts diagram available and because so far I didn't need to.
I wanted to put the recommended grease back into it but MTD lists their Bentonite type 0 for $20 for 8oz and they don't have any in stock. The manual suggests using Shell grease which with a little research I found to be Shell Darina type 0 clay based. Apparently they don't make it anymore and nobody makes clay based at all anymore. The closest I found was Shell Gladus type 0.5 $6 for 14oz from Mcmaster Carr.
Here's my question: If I'm going to switch grease, should I open up the differential so I can clean out the old grease in there? I'm not sure I want them to mix but they likely will a little, maybe not? I was thinking I should pack more grease into the differential, maybe I shouldn't? Anybody have experience opening one of these up?
A related question is: how tight should I make the bolt that holds the spider gears together? If I make it too tight the axles don't move smoothly, I can feel each tooth engaging as the axles turn. I'm thinking of locktiting the nut on just barely hand tight. Any thoughts?
