MM 1953 Model BF

Del Harris I have a MM 1953 BF I need a few parts. The BF presently needs a clutch assembly rework.

1) clutch disk (ten teeth spline 9" dia.)
2) clutch release bearing
3) pressure plate or just replacement release
fingers
4) pilot bearing in flywheel
5) clutch shaft rear bearing
6) 2 drive shaft universal joints

I figure on the bearings I probably can take them
to a bearing distributer and cross reference them.
However, I'm not sure if this will work for all
of the bearings I need.
The biggest obvious dilemas are the preasure
plate, clutch disc and u joints. The preassure
plate surface could be cleaned up, but the release
fingers on the plate are shot. The clutch disc probably could be relined, but I don't know any sources for this operation.
I would like to do further work on this tractor,
and am interested in any good contacts and parts
sources.
I presently own a manual by Intertec which
contains a collection of MM Shop manuals BF
included. This manual has been very helpful in
many ways, but week in some others.
I would also like to do some work on the
Hydraulics on the BF, MM calls it a HKG System,
but my BF manual doesn't show a breakdown of it.
While looking at other MM systems in my shop
manual collection for other MM tractors, I
discovered my HKG hydraulic system looks identical
to the MM Uni-matic Hydraulic system. The only
differences I can see are cosmetic, like tank
mounting and control manifold plumbing. Pump, ram
and contol resevoir look the same.
I was wondering if there are any other manuals
which may break down the Hydrulics, specific to
the BF model beter than the one I have.

Thanks
Del Harris
