Snowblower auger gear box oil/lube specification, model 247.88790

I am looking for the specification for the lube used in the auger gear box (reduction housing lubricant) on my Craftsman Model 247.88790 snowblower. I have the owners manual and it does not specify this. I called the Sears parts number and they could not find it either and directed me to this site. I searched the site and only found something like "any lithium grease" as a spec. I am concerned, however, that this may not be accurate enough as there are a few threads on other sites that go into great detail on the brand and type(Shell Alvania EPR00, MAG 1 from Lubriplate, Lubriplate MAG 00, GL-4, GL-5, etc.). I need to get it running soon - HELP!!!
