Ok, I'm thinking you've got a 320 that fits an L or M? Regardless, your friends suggestion of a Deere head really isn't that bad depending on the condition of your 320. If your 320 needs a complete overhaul...ball ends, stabilizer bushings and pins, new floor metal, straighten or replace skid plates, the whole litany of things that restrict movement to up and down, not side to side, that gets pretty spendy , pretty fast! Depending on what Deere head and it's condition it might or might not be much of an improvement. The thing is, there's just a whole lot more Deere heads floating around out there to choose from versus Gleaners to fit your combine. Of course, you still need to figure in an adapter.
So, what kind of shape is your head in, and how long do you intend to keep this combine/head combination? If its a short term fix i think id opt for the hose mod before i spent money on raised feather sheets. That's really going to determine which direction to take this.
