You need to bleed your fuel line. Diesel leaves a thin coat of oil and this needs to be removed via bleeding the line in order to get a high enough octane level that will be combustible and burn off any other residue that could be left with inside the cylinder itself.
Pull your plugs and soak them in 70% or higher isopropyl rubbing alcohol to remove the oil that has covered the plugs themselves.
Also, make sure to put in some jet cleaner to clean your fuel jets so they will push enough gasoline for the engine to run properly.
Any 5W30 will work fine, however because the oil coolers in 1970 and pre 70 VW were so marginal it is a good idea to put a full flow oil filter on and if you really want to do it a service you should consider a remote cooler or a post 70 VW dog house cooler that was larger and added to your oil capacity by about 1.5 qts and you can extend your oil change to 3000 mi. I am an avid Amsoil fan for proven reasons... I have a hard working F-350 power stroke diesel with 240,000 miles on it and still as strong as new thanks to Amsoil 100% synthetic. One thing about synthetics that will help your 70 is that they tend to make your engine run cooler, but be warned if you have an oil consumption condition now it will be aggravated by synthetics so in that case stick with a good quality name brand Dino oil like Shell or Esso etc.
