'87 with a 523? I assume it was swapped in, as it should have a 520..
Anyways, you'll never find new parts for these things, best to just replace the trans with another junkyard one.

Yea if I could walk right now as I have a broken ankle I know a junkyard around me that I could get a shaft for you for cheap. The junk yard has two transmissions just sitting in back of a totaled Shelby Daytona aNd one is a 523.

I did come up with the part number for the 5th gear rail shaft 04340072
I also need the 2 fork nylon spacer pads 04295519 or 025114621
