Hoof belt drive governor- what oil to use?

I have a Hoof belt drive governor on my 1970 chipper, it has an oil cup, does anyone know what oil I'm supposed to use?

Thanks Restrob. I'm helping a friend restore an old chipper, and ran into that question. I'm in Sanford, Fl you helped me with a carb problem before, do you thing it get's cold enough here to warrant changing to 10W in the Winter?

I didn't notice where your at, I'm 165 miles NW of you and have never ran nothing but 30W so you should be fine with that year round.
