Most modern engines use 10/40 or similar.
20/50 was well used in older classic vehicle. I would ask at your parts supplier when purchasing the oil, he or she will have the correct specifications on hand from their oil supplier.
Hope this helped!

use a very small funnel placed into the dipstick tube check frequently with the dipstick so you don't overfill

on the bottom of the transmission pan you will find a nut with a hex or torx in the middle you remove the center plug when the truck is hot and running on a level serface the trans fluod will dribble out if it does not dribble out it is low if it runs out fast a steedy streem it is over full now their is a part that screws into this for a fill if you remove the pan you will see how it works the pan has a pipe/ stack that when full of fluid the top of the pipe is at the full point if you remove the large nut the stack and plug will come out the best way to change the trans fluid is take it to some place that has a fluid exchange equment this will get all the fluid out including the torque converter

Hi , the plug on the bottom of case is the drain plug and the check/fill plug is located on the side of the case, however the transmission lubricant level and quality shouldn't deteriorate under normal driving conditions, but it is recommended that you check the level occasionally. 1. Remove the check/fill plug on the side of the case, if car is raised to gain access to the plug, be sure to support it safely on jackstands! 2. Use your little finger to reach inside the housing and feel the lubricant level. It should be at or very near the bottom of the plug hole. 3. If it isn't, add the recommended lubricant through the plug hole using a syringe or squeeze bottle. 4. Install and tighten the plug securely and check for leaks after the first few miles of driving. I know you said it is a manual transmission but my source recommends that after 1988 use Motorcraft MERCON automatic transmission fluid (part no.AT-2-QDX) . Verify this at the place where you buy the lubricant , either an auto parts store or Ford dealer with a service department!!!
