I would guess that it is the 400. The one I bought had the same. Sell it to me for 500

every 8 lug F250 from the late 70's i have come across has been a D44 HD........sure its a D60 being a F250?

and yeah probably a 351 400M, it used to have a sticker on the drivers valve cover saying motor size, but i would assume that would be worn off by now

The 4th letter in the vin will be the engine code.

G= 302
H= 351M
S= 400
J= 460

To clear some things up.
The 460 was not an option in 79, so I would think that it would be the same for 77-79 era.
The F250's with the snow fighter package, high GVWR, or ordered from Ford came with 60's.

You could get the 460's in 2wd's trucks, not 4
