Using AFT in a manual is very common these days. I had a
1983 Mazda that was sold with ATF in the manual
transmission. It recommended replacing the ATF with gear oil
at 30,000 miles. I did this. The next day I replaced the
gear oil with ATF - the thing was a bear to shift with gear
oil for a lubricant.
