Default Ford 3000/3600 versus Ford 4000/4600 gearbox

To settle an arguement.

Can anyone tell me if the gearboxes fitted to these tractors are different.

I am pretty sure a 3000 gearbox won't fit a 4000 but been told otherwise but then again I have been wrong before.

I had a Ford 4550 and it had four reverse gears .I only once got her going flat out in high reverse for demonstration purposes .
