McConnel gearbox help!

I have an old McConnel PA44 with Flail form about 1980. The bearings in the gearbox that drives the pump have died. When I measure them they appear to match metric sizes. Outside diameter 90mm, inside 50mm and 20mm wide. As the rest of the parts are all imperial is it likely that the bearings would be metric?
Anybody out there got any thoughts or comments please?? TIA

You can get a complete alloy gearbox off flow fit hydraulics.
Did bearings on old Hy reach once and not much good as the alloy housings had worn and the bearings turned.

I think it's the bearings in the gearbox he needs Kev, the 'box in these should be cast iron housing and the pumps either alloy or iron housing, Pavesi or Comer boxes usually.

Thanks to all!
It is the gearbox bearings I need and the housing is alloy. I had the found the ones on Simply Bearings site, was not convinced that bearings would be metric and rest of fittings imperial - down to UNF nuts and bolts to hold it together! I hear what is said about bearings turning in housing but will use bearing tite and take a chance as machine does not do much work.
