SOURCE: Automatic gearbox

Does the car have over 60,000 miles? if so have you changed the fluid and filter in the transmission? worn out fluid can cause these and the filter starts to plug and starves the valve body of fluid, hence the delay.

Is there a pin in the transmissio n or transfer case that can come loose to make it not shift into reverse

There's no pin as such. An automatic gearbox does have solenoids for operating valves.
A valve can become stuck.

Reverse gear is first gear - when you select reverse a 'cog' moves onto first gear to reverse the direction of the gearbox output shaft - giving you reverse.

It may well be a stuck valve. Try selecting reverse a few times after the car has been run and the fluid is hot. A stuck valve (in the transmission) may free itself

What would cause a 1998 ford ranger to die when you put it in drive but goes in reverse fine

Check if the you have an automatic gearbox for a steel and/or rubber pipe attached to the gearbox via a little vacuum unit. If this exists this pipe is connected to the inlet manifold, and supplies vacuum for the gearbox to select top gear in an automatic gear box. If this rubber and/or steel pipe is damaged or fallen off, repair or replace as necessary and then try again. If the vehicle has a manual gearbox, check the selector lever's, arms and or connectors. These can be rubbing on the vacuum pipes and may have split one of them.
