You can start several ways, although I'm not sure you'll get back the needed contrast. First, try straight print developer...undiluted, with your #5 filter and see if that helps. You can always selenium tone (1:3) the negs for added contrast. There used to be a product called Chromium Intensifier made by Kodak that would also help. Maybe the Photographers Formulary makes a version. If so, try that first before the selenium. Maybe a combination of all 3 will get you what you need.
