2.3-16V servicing info

I have recently acquired a late '86 2.3-16V with 120,000 miles. I plan to have the car serviced and would like to know the lubes most of you would recommended for this model. Specifically:

1) engine oil
2) gearbox oil
3) rear axle oil
4) brake fluid
5) coolant
6) power steering oil
7) spark plugs

I did notice that the car was difficult to engage gears when cold. Gears need double clutching to shift. Gear shifts became normal after a couple of minutes of driving (2-3).

Does this car with a 102.983 engine share common bottom half of the block parts with the non-16V 2.3 engines?

any advice is much appreciated.
