Hi,
Below is the 1949 Cub owner's manual, if you don't have it. The experts on here recommend reading it, it has lots of info about operation, maintenance, and lubrication. There is a table of contents on page 1.
It has pics of how the Cub was originally.
The recommendation for using motor oil in the Touch Control was changed later, to use Case IH Hy - Tran fluid, Jim Becker has said.
The Lubrication section begins on page 14, and the Lubrication Guide begins on page 18.

I would check or change all the oils before using the Cub for work.
There are 3 separate gear housings at the rear of a Cub, with 3 separate oil levels to check.
The transmission, and 2 final drives. The owner's manual shows how to check them.
The trans commonly get water in them, from rain, or condensation inside the housing over time.
It is good to check it, and change the oil if water is in it, or if it hasn't been changed lately.

There are other oils also to check or change, they are shown in the owner's manual. :)
