Welcome to FTF. There is a link below that Duncan(DNFXDLI) posted for decoding 1979 VIN numbers.

The 4th digit in should be an "S", indicating a 400 2V motor.

You have an F250 4X4, 400 motor, manufactured in San Jose, Ca. in July of 1979.

You also have a 4:10 rear axle with Limited Slip as indicated by the "410" and the "LS". That is all that I can decode.

It might not hurt to post this in the GEN 6 forum for some more exposure.

Thank you for the message, how can I post it at gen 6 with out starting over

You can do one of two things. Simply put a new post in the Gen 6 forum, or request a moderator move this post. Since the initial intent is for an introduction, I would leave this one here and just repost the problem in the GEN 6 forum. :wavey:
