New to me tn65 no 1 or 2 gear

I recently bought my friends 2000 tn65. It had been at our hunting club and sat far 2 years, (he bought a new one with a feont end loader) other than a leaking seal it was running fine when parked. Engine runs great, the shuttle works great, the a/b works fine......but 1-2-3-4 shifter seems to only have 3 and 4. It shows an H pattern on the shifter but I can’t get it to move left, just forward and back. Maybe I am doing something wrong or there is a trick to it? Maybe something in the shifter? I went underneath and the shaft that goes into the transmission does not move in or out (I assume it is supposed to). I really like this tractor as it is replacing my mid 70’s Massey Ferguson. Just wondering if Anyone had any experience ir ideas.

Thank you

It is definitely bound up. There is a grease fitting on the shift mechanism....took a while but I finally got some grease in there....added heat and more grease iver several hours now I have all four gears! Yay!
Any chance on a photo? I have the exact issue but in 1-2. Would love to get this fixed. Thank you for giving me some hope of a less costly issue.
