Pretty sure Ford has the small pan w/out the mount feet and is on platform that mounts to rubber mounts on frame. Think the deere should have the wide pan with outer feet and mounts solid. IF the deere has platform and rubber feet, which later ones probly had, then think you would be good to go. You won't have much luck taking the platform out of Fornd and trying to adapt to deere if that was idea. On pan swaps......Once had a Case with small pan, K engine with big pan. Found holes inside block of big engine that small pan needed to mount into. No threads! I threaded and worked. New problem, the case on big engine had bulges at each side that matched the old pan. Small pan has no bulges and would make the case be open then. Found a fella that made a flat steel pan adapter that matched each block and used gasket from each to block up those bump-outs and seals up fine. That is another option.
