You want to use Manual Transmission fluid and nothing else. You can use Royal Purple Synchromax (http://www.royalpurple.com/manual-transmission-fluid.html),it's for manual transmissions. DO NOT use auto trans fluid. There are other brnads as well just have to look around.

make sure you use synthetic manual transmission fluid--- ford has their own but its like 35 bucks a quart--- its a higher viscosity than normal --- something like 75-80w but dont quote me on that :) not 100% sure on the weight
