transmission fluid

I have a 1977 Islander 32 with a Volvo MD7a Engine and a MS transmission. Does anyone know what is the correct transmission fluid to use?

If you haven't received an answer yet, it will be the same oil that goes into the MD7A, straight 30 weight. I've had a leek between the engine and transmission for a while and finally took them apart and replaced the seal. The tranny fluid was emptying into the engine. Lots of fun.
