Ferguson te 20 I can't seller third gear I've had a look at selectors but doesn't seem to be a problem,thanks nick

If the selectors are in neutral and you can't get third gear check that the selector shaft is not seized and the gear is free to slide on the splined shaft.

If third, forth, and fifth work OK then there could be a selector problem. Does the gear stick go into the correct position? If so then selector and or other internal problem which will require removal

Torque converter is probraly going bad, the automatic gear selector having trouble seeking or going into another gear unless high rpm to select it out to another gear. Could also be your 1gear is getting bad. you may need to take it to the shop as in the long term, it can damage more. You could check to see if fluid is up to level too, as this does happen when it's low in transmission fluid.

It could be as simple as the selecter arm that turns the drum , this will be visible with the clutch cover off( and maybe the clutch) this selector arm is on the other end of the gear lever shaft

The drum is the internal part that positions the selectors in the gbox, when you say there is no resistance would mean its not turning this drum. so its probably not an internal gear or selector fork problem

Car wont go in third gear

the gear selectors have to be removed from the box to get the box out
it is possible that the selector area was not properly adjusted after installation of the box
you may be able to see the problem using a friend to shift the gears ( stationary -engine off) while you look at the selector movements --3rd gear will not select easily
the garage that did the job is a fault here as they haven't done the job properly or tested the car after the job to fix faults before you took it back
if you have to , take it to an accredited professional transmission service center for a diagnosis and quote
there will be nothing wrong with the box just the selector system
