Ford change the clutch disc and fluid spec after the 1976
model year. If the trans is a 1977 up, it should use the
Dexron/Mercon spec fluid. You should also find this on the
dipstick. The current version of this is the Dexron
III/Mercon spec. Do not use the Mercon V spec in the C6.
Doing a Google search turned up this and 1000's of other hits.
Looks like it's Mercon/ DexronIII.
