The similarity equations based on correct scaling as described in the reference book 'Convection Heat Transfer' by Adrian Bejan. The equations are given as:
(3/4)*F*theta' = theta"
(1/Pr)*(0.5*F'^2 - (3/4)*F*F") = - F"' + theta
The pdf file explains the correct scaling and also describes the derivation and the results of the numerical solution in detail.
Hope this helps!
