406 Transmission Jumping out of gear

Please Help...sure you have heard this before...I’m a new member who has recently acquired a 406 recovered from bad debt. I have fallen in love with it and am now in the process of restoring. I have read thorough the blogs and have found many questions with respect to transmissions but no specific answers. The basic thread however has not been positive! My 406 jumps out of gear under load...gear selection and drive is fine with the wheels raised or jacked up, but I lose drive the moment it comes under load.
Please Help
