Looking to add another tractor to the stable. It's a 46 2n that the current owner says will not shift into 1st. All other gears function as they should. It also has hydro issues but he is wanting to trade it to me for an old woods ZTR that I have nothing in. I'm tempted to trade him but wanted to see if the no 1st gear issue points to something major.

Even if you had to replace the transmission, I would not consider that to be major. Easy to rebuild these trans. could be simple as a rusted shift rail

If it's something simple like Bob suggests it could clear up by driving it around in high gear to get oil splashed up onto the gear slides.

I would pull the top tranny cover and check out the rustyness and clean up as needed , then squirt a bunch of 90 wt gear oil all over the gearing.
