Crypto-Peerless mixer.

I have a Crypto-Peerless ec30 30qt mixer that's leaking oil from the planetary assembly. The assembly is held on with just one nut, which I've been able to loosen, but the planetary assembly shows no signs of budging, to spite encouragement from a rubber mallet.

Any advice?

I contacted the manufacturer about a repair manual, weeks ago, but no reply.

After a bit more work the assembly did drop down to reveal a mess of oil and old grease. 

I think the mixer uses oil, not grease, for the transmission. I've contacted the manufacturer again about a manual or at least what lube to use, but in the mean time I've read that some of the larger Hobarts use oil. What type do they use?
