Default Synthetic Oil In old diesel?

Hey, is any body running synthetic oil in their old diesels? I'm thinking of doing it, anyone have any input? I got a HATZ diesel from the 80's

If it has a pressure lubrication system with a proper oil filter it will be ok as long as the correct viscosity is used.
