Is the transmission differential locked up ? 
Does it shift into forward gears ?

Simplest solution first would be dry or seized detent roller in the shift plate mechanism. Douse it down with lots of penetrating oil. I fought mine for a couple years, I'd pull the lever with one hand and hit it with the other to get it into reverse. At times when I would shift to park it would drag the high low linkage into high, so I'd be stuck in both park and high range at the same time. Started dismantling things expecting to have issues under the range cover, but after disconnecting the linkages it was obvious that all my problems were in the shifting plates. Got them lubed up good and it shifts like a dream.
