Well I don't know the differeents neither the differents between a
DC10-30 and -40, but I will try to tell you the difference between a
DC10-30 and DC10-40. :-)

The DC10-30 and -40 are both long range versions of the DC10 series. The
-30 is powered by 3 CF6-50C2B engines rated at 227 kN. The -40 is
powered by 3 PW JT9D59A2 engines rated at 236 kN. There were only 42
DC10-40 built, 22 for NW and 20 for JAL. This isn't a lot compared to
the 209 DC10-30 which were sold. For further details have a look at
http://www.geocities.com/CapeCanaveral/Lab/8803/technic.htm where the
most interesting parameters for the DC10 are summarized.
