old school Shimano STX rapid fire shifter (sounded like a crack, now no upshift)

I have an old bike that I'm attached to.. I was just riding with the kids and when I was shifting it sounded like/felt like a "crack". Now the right side shifter won't go up from 1. Back derailer, stuck on lowest cog wheel. given the bike is about ... old 15, 20 years... can I even find parts for it? I'm pretty handy, so not afraid to take apart and repair myself... just wondering about parts.

The indexing gear(s) inside the shifter is broken. You can probably find a shifter on eBay.
