    Shouldn't hurt, but it probably won't do any good. The oil will just run out. Use some good grease.

    have u ran it yet? the oil will find its way out of the tranny, probably make a mess, and when its all gone then theres no lubricant,that can cause a issue. I have used heavy bearing grease with no problems ran on 3s.

    Plain wheel bearing grease is easy cheap and probably the best solution. Just stick a little in there and let the motor put it where it needs to go. You wont have to look at it again until something breaks.

    Motor oil and grease are petroleum based so the oil shouldn't hurt it more than grease.
