Tongue axle codes

I own a 84 ford F250 i am tring to figure out what ratio and type of axles i have. It is a 4X4. I bought the 1984 truck shop manual body chassis electrical. I found that i have axle code B6= dana limited slip # capacity 5300 ratio 3.55 but then nothing for the front axle. What type of dana is this 40 50 60? also where are the # stamped on the rear end it's self i don't know some one could have changed it in all of these years. Also where would i find my front axle code? thanx alot

It might be a Dana 40, the 50 isn't really common on F-250s. I bet it is a 40. The code might be behind the axle near the gear housing.
