Rainbird 5000 Rotor Replacements

My sprinkler system is comprised of Rainbow 5000 Series rotors, etc. I have one that is no longer rotating that I would like to replace myself (versus paying a contractor to do so). I have checked all the local hardware stores (i.e. Home Depot, Lowes's, Marvins, etc.) and none sell the 5000 rotors. I have also looked online and have not found anything except the 5004. There is a lot of documentation, etc. about the 5000 and the 5000 Plus but I cannot find any for sale.

Are the 5000's no longer made? Should I be replacing them with the 5004?

Any help would be appreciated.

Same animal. A 5004 is a 5000 series rotor in the standard 4 inch pop-up form.

As wet boots posted it is the same. Just FYI, you can buy a new 5004 rotor for like $7.75 so the parts might be too much to replace.
