"New" diesel owner

Hi folks. I'm Lee from Dallas. Last March I bought my first Mercedes: an '82 300SD which we plan to run on WVO, if we get that far. The interior's in good shape, and the body as well, aside from needing paint.

My car's major problem is the transmission, shfting harshly from first to second, and flaring from second to third. I'm leaning toward it being a vacuum problem, but I'm on the hunt for troubleshooting tips before I delve into rebuilding the transmission.
