Default What fluid for 87 AOD?

Hello all and Happy New Year.

I am replacing the pan (damage) and filter in my 87 Bronco and can not get straight info on the fluid the tranny takes. The shop manual I have states Mercon, yet in other spots in the same manual it calls for Mercon V. The tranny is an AOD, it is the original for the vehicle, but was rebuilt about 12 years ago. The trans has never lost a drop of fluid between annual changes, and I have always paid to have that done as dropping a pan full of fluid was more mess than I wanted to deal with, so I never learned the type of fluid. So, if someone could give me an absolute answer, I would appreciate it.
