Self propelled walk behind maintenance

I've had this self-propelled walk behind for about five years and my grandpa a few before that, I think it's about 15 years old. I've never messed with the gear box for the self-propelled. I popped off the vent and was able to put some MaxGear 75w90 in it. Works alot better.. if the belt was tight it would leave burn marks. The problem is though it's leaking a little bit out around the axles. Would actual grease work better? It's a off-brand and the manuals are non-existant.

My Craftsman has a sticker on it that I will look at tonight, but I believe it specs Torco oil (can't remember the weight).

I need to look at it further. I could easily fill it with some good moly grease once all the gear oil leaks out. If it even leaks completely out. The gear oil probably cleaned it up good though.
