The moon caps from the later CV's will fit the early ones with a little persuasion. I put them on the t'axle end of my '79 shafts. It makes for a much cleaner job when dropping the engine. I run a small bead of RTV around the flange ID of the cap before installing on the CV, it seals the cap and holds it on to the CV if you have to disconnect the shaft.

I always wonder if you can use the caps on the older style CVs, I hate trying to keep the grease clean and those damn gaskets straight while installing.

Last time I put everything together dry and squeezed grease in with a syringe through the outer opening. It took me like 20 min of squeezing a syringe to get sufficent grease through a large gauge needle.

I will definitely get the caps next time.
