Taking off you give it gas it revs but won't shift unless you let off the gas for a few seconds. Shifts through the rest of the gears fine. Over 50mph the rpm will shoot up...

sounds like your transmission linkage is out of adjustment, you would need to look up the specifications for it, i would recommend getting a repair manual so you can follow the steps needed to adjust it or replace linkage

Thank you. I'll look at that
