79 CJ5 manual shifter service kit?

I found a shifter service kit on ebay for 80 and newer but nothing for 79. I'm not sure what the years differences are.

I have my shifter apart for carpet installation and I'm missing one of the shifter pins and my gasket is tore.

I may be able to get by with a new pin and gasket but where do I round those up?

If there's nothing out there I'll just make my own but if the service kit is cheap enough I'll just go with new parts.

A kit for 80 and up isn't going to work on '79 and older.

Know of a kit that's available or should I just make my own pin and gasket which is basically all I need. Not sure how much difference a new spring will make. Not a big deal.
