Sams needed for Magnavox C36-20-11 TV chassis

I'm a relative novice working with TV's so please bear with me. I'm having trouble finding the correct Sams folder for this TV chassis. Sams #591 is the closest I have come up with for the C36 series chassis. This chassis is in a circa 1962-ish Magnavox Stereo Theater, model 1MR418. It is a black and white chassis with a 27" CRT and is also equipped with Total Remote Control system. I'm suspecting the remote control system may be what is tripping me up. I count 15 tubes in the TV chassis, plus the CRT. The remote control system is solid state. I'd like troubleshooting and repair information for the remote control system as well, if possible. Thank you all for your help.

You have to watch Sams on Maggys. Maggy would build
the same model ## with different chassii. Sears & Sony did it too.
Try looking up the chassis ## for the individual units. You
often find them as part of other folders.
If you know of a complete Sams you can go through a few
years of them & usually find similar sets.

I'm familiar with the Magnavox "mix and match" system of production. I have the Sams for the individual stereo components, amp, tuner, MPX adapter and that. I need information on the TV and remote control system. #591 lists several C36-20-XX models, but not C36-20-11. There is another Sams that lists the C36 series, so maybe that is the one I need to look at. I do not have a Sams library close, so I have been looking online. Thanks for your input.
