Question about Cars & Trucks
Cable ok, shaft ok, suspect a gearbox fault as have two with the same problem. Push it and it will engage eventually.
The pull cable that you use to go is probably attached to a pull clutch on the face of a gear . This clutch face will probably be worn as it is thin and not of good quality material. If you have 2 with the same problem then pull one apart and check what has failed . Parts may be available

You may have torn the splinds on the drive shaft at the gearbox end.Remove and check.If there ok then the diff is your problem and its incased in the gearbox housing.

Testimonial: "Thanks for your valauable help. I have ordered a rebuild kit and will rebuild the whole box to stop further problems. Again thanks"
sounds like it is in get you home because of gearbox failure if its the early box with metal sump check selector cable adjustment it critical as the J gate micro switches and the linear switch on the side of the gearbox have to be in sync with each other. on the other hand if it is the later gearbox with plastic sump, which i suspect it will be, check it has not lost some of its oil due to leaking sump, common problem! other wise check fault codes in transmission control module, any codes relating to incorrect gear ratio means internal falure most times
