transmission fluid

I posted this a few days ago, but haven't recieved any responses, so I'm posting it again.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I'm sure this has been discussed before, but I checked the archives and couldn't find a description of the procedure for draining and replacing the transmission fluid in a manual trans car ('84 5KS).  I've got the Bentley, and know where the valves are, but I'd appreciate any tips anyone has.  Just replaced the motor mounts and did the transmission mounts 6 months ago so the car is shifting quite nicely, but not as smoothly as I'd like.  With all the talk on the list recently, I'd like to replace the fluid.  Everyone seems to mention Redline, so that's probably use that, but what weight?  It often gets down to -35 C here in the winter, don't know how much difference that makes.
