Post 1979 Arctic Cat El Tigre 5000

Hello, I just picked up a '79 El Tigre that currently doesn't run. I was told I needed some carb parts, and may have a gasket leak. As to where, neither they or I know. I ordered all the parts I know I need, and expect to have quite a few questions in the coming days, as I am completely new to snowmobiles.

My first question:
The drop case is completely dry. What type of oil do I need, how much do I fill it with, and is it something I could pick up from autozone? There aren't any sled shops close.
