I've never ran a gear box, but several transmissions.   

I always ran a synthetic gear lube.   Had very few failures.

I did try tractor hydraulic oil in one.   All it did was leak and make a huge mess.

After that I decided the engineers that formulate oil know better about application than I do.    So I always used gear lube.
