VIN issue

I'm helping a friend sell his 1984 CJ. All the vin decoders I found say the 5th digit is for trans. His 5th digit is F. I can't find F on the decoders for that year. For 81-86 it shows the 5th digit as being B, A, M, or N. 75-80 has an F for three speed. I'm picking up the Jeep tomorrow to look at it but he says it's a 4 speed. 4 speed would make it M. Here is the vin.

Using this decoder:http://www.vehicleidentificationnumb...eep-truck.html the transmission SHOULD be a 5 speed with a 258 CID I6 engine.
I'd rather be lost on the trails than found at home!
