That looks to be an MTD 960. I have an 860. Check with our sponsors. When I've needed MTD parts, Joe's Outdoor (one of our sponsors on the Forums Page) was able to help me. He may not have what you want instock but wait and check in frequently since his stock is always changing. The manuals for that are in our Manuals Section. Download them and perform all maintenance. Most times problems are just a need for maintenance. There was an update to my clutch years ago. The updateparts may still be around.
Part of the challenge of this hobby is finding or making the parts that you need. If your clutch disk is worn out you may be able to have it relined at a Brake/Clutch rebuilder. Almost every city had them 40 years ago, but now they are harder to find. Post clearer pics when you have more questions. BTW, since Your Dad bought that new, it is in a very special class of "Heritage Tractors" since it has stayed in the family. Good Luck, Rick

If the cover is coming off, you can glue in on with something like green Loctite (bearing retainer).

It was still working just fine when I sold it. The key to longevity I think is to make sure that the throw-out arm doesn't touch with the clutch out. Mine had a bad release spring when I got it, it had let the bearing ride the throw-out arm and wore them both out.
