Hello. By itself, an old injury like this would not be expected to cause an acute onset of cerebellar problems. However, if the cerebellum or some if its tracts were injured 40 years ago, there might have been some neuronal damage or permanent changes that made you more vulnerable over the years to other factors. An MRI can often sort out changes that are more recent in origin compared with those from long ago.
