Magna Tiller Gearbox Lube

I have an early '70's model Magna tiller (model 500296). They made tillers for Sears, too.

Does anyone have the specs on the gearbox lube?

That would take the lube as snowblowers. Since it is an early 70's and a tiller, you can use 80W90 gear lube available at any auto parts store.
I don't recomend 80W90 on snowblowers as they are used in cold weather (and many stored in un-heated sheds). 80W90 is way too thick in sub-freezing temps.
