Dr. Shene's site has some information about flashes but I don't remember if he recommends specific ones.

No most any non dedicated flash will work, you just need to be sure the trigger voltage is under 24 volts.

But why fight the the fact that the 383 is as good as you will find and it is not expensive.

Dedicated flashes like the Sunpak 422/433 work as well. Try to keep trigger voltage around 6v.

Yeah, certainly. You are right. Time before, when I owned a Nikon F2 I had a Vivitar 285 and was happy with that.

How can I know if a flash has over 24V?

Or maybe an easy question, which flash are over 24V and are usefull?
