I’m setting up back-button focus on a Nikon N80. It looks like you set up the focus mode switch to “C” and set custom settings 11 to 4 (ae/af button initiates focus), 7 to 1 (sets shutter release button to exposure lock) and put the AF area mode selector to [+] (dynamic AF mode. It seems to work as expected, does anyone have any further input?

Try searching for Tony Northrup on Back Button Focusing. I am not sure if he covers your camera specifically but he did cover mine in detail and this really helped me set it up.

Very useful info for my D3300 and D5600, but I couldn’t find anything thing on film cameras, but very good info.
