Unhappy Looking for guts for older style frost free B K faucet & R they around

My house was built in 1975. I got the long tube type stem for the faucets for outdoors. One has cracked (4 2" long cracks) running down the tube. My guess is metal fatigue or somebody turned the handle really hard to shut off the water.
In any case, the new models use a solid shaft instead of a brass tube shaft.
I would prefer just to change it because the bathroom wall is directly under the plumbing and I figure it is minimum a 3 day job to change out the faucet for a new model.(as I have to basically destroy a bathroom wall that is directly under the plumbing. I put up a lot of cross braces between the floor joists.
Was hoping to find old guts
The numbers on the faucet casting is B K LM13344 (and there might be a "2DO" below that)

Really looking for the B K manufacturer or supplier and would ask there but don't know web address. Help would be appreciated if someone knows.
This site is my first shot at looking for the unit.
(of course this has to break "after I built the wall", drywall, and painted it)
