Here is what it looks like, Joe —-

A 716/714 will also fit and work —- except the A/R dog on a 716 is spring-loaded —- and the dog on the 420Ss & 430SS is one with friction ears.  So on the 8-420, the A/R ratchet wheel is slightly raised to accommodate the lower friction ear on the springless A/R dog.

I think it could be made to work with a 716 dog & dog spring —- but it might get...complicated, I don't know.

I have a private source that should have the right gear in stock —- but by the time I order it, get it shipped, and ship it to a member —- it might be $35??

These quality Penn parts are beginning to dry up in certain models.

The best bet might be to find a parts reel on eBay.  These are not as expensive as the greenies, as of yet —- but stay tuned, they will be.

What is the best 6 lb. Monofilament available?

I need some for a 716Z and haven't purchased anything this light in many years.

As far as I'm concerned, Trilene  XL (clear). That's all I ever use. 6# for UL & 8# for everything else.
Love those open face spinning reels! (Especially ABU & ABU/Zebco Cardinals)

Thank You Tommy.
That's what Fred recommended also.
I ordered a 3000 yd spool of 6 lb on Amazon for $38.20.

I've been looking for a main gear for a 430SS also, without success.
Even the 430SS reels being sold as parts reels on Ebay are going for high prices.

It's an old post. I did use a main gear from a 714 then modified the dog. The customer is still very happy 😃
