Default 4000S quattro hard to shift. Please help!

My 1984 4000S quattro is hard to get through the gears. It is really hard shifting into reverse. If the engine is running, it grinds pretty bad engaging reverse. I usually shut the engine of to jam it into reverse so it doesn't grind, but I need to force it. The forward gears all offer some resistance as I try to shift through them, but they don't grind like reverse. Any insight for me? Thanks!
