84 stays in 3rd when in drive

Recently picked up an 84 p-type. When I put it in drive, it feels like it's stuck in third, but manually shift to low and it goes into first. Any ideas? I'm pretty sure this is a wiring issue, but I have no idea where to start.

Check the transmission solenoid. GLWT
I did this hack with the O/D solenoid in my '82 (does not apply to a43de electronic)

Eliminate solenoid hack?
Solenoids can be dirty and not working. Possible to clean them out.
