Gearbox oil for 1971 SL350

Who can tel me for sure what kind of gearbox oil I should use in 1971 SL 350 manual gearbox. I have had suggestions from ATF Suffix A oil to hypoid w90 oil. Haynes repair manual only deals autotrans and Mercedes-Benz Deutschland - Personenwagen tech support doesn´t bother to answer to my question.

Ok. Thanks for info. I just haven´t ever heard of using ATF on manual trans, so that´s why I had hard time to believe it at first.
