As far as I know every 85-86 came with the C50. Now I have used synthetic gear oil since the car had 36,000 miles (240,000 now) and never had a problem with the 5th gear pop-out - what Marc says would make sense in that if it depends on splash the synthetic tends to stick longer
When I had my synchros changed (still C50) the transmission shop said it was a bear getting the parts since over the 4 year run they had 4 different transmissions - I am sure he was counting the SC also - but getting parts for the C50 - had to go to Japan.
I would just swap a C52
