Thanks to all who have replied with help. I found most of what I want in an LBS, International Cycles of Garden City, MI. I got a pair of 8 mm thick locknuts, a 137 mm axle, and a 1.5 mm spacer. So far so good, but of course ya don't really know until its all put together and pedalling.

Ken, I'm getting to this kind of late. Do you still need (me to look for) the part?

My Woodrup is truly a 6-speed bike. Some 126 frames have just enough clearance to allow a 7-speed freewheel, but this old girl does not. The (unmentionable off-topic modern) chain likes to saw at the bottom of the seatstay if I shift to the small cog, and we can't have that, can we?

While trying to add 2 mm of spacers to the drive side of a 6-speed old Record hub axle so it'll work on my Woodrup with a 7-speed freewheel, I broke the non-drive side locknut. Armed with my newest instruments of destruction, new Park cone wrenches, I overtightened the locknut and split it. I never thought of myself as ham fisted before, but ...

So I need a new part, and my other Campy hubs can't be donors. This locknut is only 5 mm thick, and all my others are 8 mm thick. The spacers are already pretty thin, there's not an extra 3 mm to take out. I don't know if the 5 mm was the original part spec. The inner face says "Camp 81." I do not need a matching date code, this wheel is a user not a display piece.

The 8 mm spacers don't have type on the inner face, but on the outer face recess they say "Camp 22."

Does anyone have the 5 mm Campy rear axle locknut?

Another option for me is to buy a complete 136 mm axle assembly. That would actually better suit the Woodrup once I get the 7-speed installed right.

Anybody want to sell me a 5 mm locknut or a complete 136 mm assembly? Or have any better ideas? I miss riding it!
