The parts are still available, I think I got mine from amazon.
There's also a good video on youtube showing the stripdown and overhaul of one, not mounted in a boat but the same unit.
The problem I had was in freeing the mixer part, it obviously hadn't been turned for years and was seized solid. I can't actually remember how I did it now but, from memory, penetrating fluid, gentle heat and lots of wriggling.
Just in case you're unaware, you can access the top part of the shower by removing that shelving unit starboard side of the companionway steps.
