Help With Boss DS1 2SK30ATM FET

Help With Boss DS1 2SK30ATM FET
I'm cross referencing the Japan made 2SK30ATM FET that is used in the Boss DS1 pedal and it references over to the NTE459...My question though,the gate and drain connections shown for both FETs is opposite on the 2 listings..The 2SK30ATM shows pin 2 as the gate and pin 3 as the drain and the NTE459 shows pin 2 as the drain and pin 3 as the gate..Can I still use the NTE459 and how does it install onto the board being opposite of the original FET? Thanks for some help on this..

Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

What about twisting the legs (don't cut them too short).
