Has low volume with volume all the way up
You've been close to another big radio......you think that was a question but I believe it is the answer. The rf amp transitor or the diodes in that circuit have been damaged. So that stage of amplification is not stepping it up for the next. Resulting in the electrical power converted to air audio by speaker isnt available. Cb shops refer to this as a blow front end. Tr17 is the transistor location .......just a side note some radios have a mic circuit check that dulls audio levels this is not the case here.

Swr will not go under 2.5 even with antenna adjusted up and down
if your swr is higher on 1 then on 40 then your antenna is electrically short and you have to lenghten the antenna.If it is higher on 40 then on 1 then it is long and you have to shorten it. If you have to make it longer then you may have to add a quick disconnect or a coiled spring to make it longer. To make it shorter all you have to do is trim a 1/4 in at a time off the antenna whip but you must keep checking the match until it gets down below 1.5 .
