318i Manual Gearbox link

just got a 318i, one of the issues it had when i got it was wont go into gear. the link between the stick and the transmission seems to be the issue, its been fairly beaten up (apparently the driveshaft universal blew apart and did that) and as it is atm its kinda close to standard (I think), but will only reach the top row of gears (R,1,3,5) and crunches 2,4.
its a 1990 model, with 5 speed box, does anyone have pics of the transmission and crossmember to compare to see if thats the issue, iv been told it once had a lexus v8 in it so may be the issue?
thanks in advance
