Spline grease = "copper grease".
Good experience and keeps the rust out.

The o/d uses the same oil as the gearbox, is filled/levelled and drained at
the same points (but there is a drain plug on the earlier o/d but not the
later), and the grade should be the same as used in the engine for your
local climatic conditions e.g. GTX 20W/50 as you say.  Gearbox only is 4.5
UK pints (2.56 litres, 5.6 US pints), with o/d is 5.33 UK pints (3.36
litres, 6 US pints).
