Manual transmission fluid

I have a Euro W126 with manual transmission (4 speed). I do not have the original manuals, but have a Haynes. It suggests using motor oil for the transmission. It also calls for like 2 qts (do not have it in front of me now, going by memory). This does not seem right. I want to use synthetic and was going to order some Red Line MTF that is all the rage on the Miata Forum. It of course would be much easier to go to auto zone and pick up some Mobil 1. Any suggestions about weights and volume? Thanks in advance.
