transmission issue 740

have a 1987 1987 740. with the 4cyl and 4 speed OD trans. The transmission is not shifting out of 1st gear, checked the obvious fluid level etc.

I would think that the linkage is bent or out of adjustment, however it seems to go into rev, park, nuetral without issue. I am not that familur with this vehicle so I thought I would ask the forum, if there is any common 740 volvo issue that might be causing this
