Does it look like the oil has been changed before? If not, most of that could be from "wearing in"
One other thought, I remember my Grandpa telling me they used to have an aluminum and graphite powder additive for EP situations, the theory was the aluminum was softer than the steel and the graphite was slippery Obviously, not the best plan as they don't still do it. I've never seen it myself, but he used to work for the state DOT and they worked big trucks in cold temps, probably ran thinner oil in the tranny's back then, may be why they did it.

Ebay is a good source for used parts, there are always pieces/parts listed. Many of the wear parts are "standard" parts that can be sourced thru local or on-line machinery oulets.
Need help looking for specific parts post up a list and we will see what we can do.
