Vin decoder error?

So using the vin decoder the fifth character should determine engine and my options should be B, A, M or N, however my fifth character (confirmed with VIN plate) is F. Any thoughts? My jeep is an 1985 CJ7 with the 258, T5 - 5 speed with a Dana 300.

The fourth charater is for the engine. A 258 would be "C". The fifth is for trans/t-case. An "F" is 5 spd, part time 4x4.
