    Does anybody know what type of gear oil goes in the front axle and wheel ends of a Michigan 125B? The owner lost his manual in a fire. Any help would be appreciated.

    Try pdfmanualshere.com see if you can find anything there. I'm thinking though that if it has external brakes then it should be like 85/140 gear oil. Let me know if that website helps though.

    If I remember right I just run 80/90 or similar in mine, but don't know what the manual says.
