corn head

i have a JD 6620 combine w/443 corn head.
i have trouble feeding down corn past the ear savers. yesterday i saw a corn head that had some aftermarket parts on it and the owner said it cured his problem.
i'll try to describe it- it's a piece of curved (like the snouts) steel that bolts to the original snouts just behind the cast nosepiece, and extends up past the earsavers, basically covering the snouts and giving a smooth path for down corn up and over the earsavers. it does much the same as the newer plastic snouts, but i don't want to put $2200 in my older head to upgrade to plastic.
the guy that has them bought the head with them on and doesn't know who makes or sells them. the JD dealer doesn't know where they come from, either.
if anybody out there knows what they're called and who makes them or sells them, i'd sure appreciate knowing where to get them.
thanks in advance.
ps- if this is the wrong site, sorry, but i didn't see one for combines.
