Sounds like the 2nd gear band is stuffed, happend to my 2L cortina, lost 1st and got rebuilt, then 6 months later reverse died, got rebuilt (I believe original job was dodgy), but the bands broke, or slipped so badly couldnt get a gear :0)

Ok 2nd gear needs the band adjusted, you can do it with the gearbox in car, drop the sump on it, and it can be adjusted from there, never done it, but I know its possible, might work, does it get to 3rd at all, or wont go past 2nd.
