I would use "0" moly grease, or mix your own using moly paste ( assembly lube) and "0" or "00" grease. #1 will work also.

Fish is correct--you will find that the Snapper manual will indicate the use of 00 grease. I'm not inclined to pay John Deere prices normally, but you will likely find their price cheaper than you will pay at a Snapper dealer. The JD 00 grease will be classified as "cornhead grease" for headers on combines in the from of a normal grease gun tube.
Thanks I had a tube of 00 grease I got from Rotary a few years back so I put some of that in. There is a big label saying don't overfill.
