every now and then it jumps out of 5th gear.
can I find the parts to rebuild it or do I have to get another trans?
all the other gears work fine no grinding or noise.

These transmissions aren't known for their absolute brute strength, but it should be reasonably rebuildable.  Syncro may be bad or shift linkage...  Think a full kit still running about 200 shipped..  You can spin the dice on another truck trans or a 5 speed from a 280zx!

Rebuild kit should be avail for around 100$ includes gaskets, seals, synchros, and bearings.

Just about any transmission parts supplier.  Call Whatever it takes Trans in Charlotte NC.

i have the exact opposite problem with my 280ZX trans, the shift lever would be hard to get out of 5th gear.
occasionally, i would have to yank it out of 5th when downshifting.
otherwise, it's a freeway flyer.
