final drive housing

My friend has a 430 crawler,not sure of the year.He needs a final drive housing.Will the late 420's or early 440's fit or does it have to be off of a 430? Thanks.

roller grease gun

I got an old pail type grease gun that came with my TD9.I checked the pressure and it only makes 1500 psi.What you guys think about using this with corn head grease for my 420?

Thanks,Cooter
