no 5th or reverse gear - ZF 5 speed

A buddy of mine started his 97 F250 after it sat for a few days in the cold and he says the shifter feels slightly different when 5th or reverse are selected, but it still feels like it goes in gear. However, when he lets out the clutch, no power goes to the wheels.
I guess 5th and reverse are on the same shaft. Could the shift fork for that shaft have become disconnected somehow? Any help with this? Anybody seen this before?

1996 F350 CC, converted to 4wd, 5sp, Tymar, otherwise stock as the day it was built.

Seriously?!?! Not a single idea? Wow. I didn't think there was anything about this truck that this group wouldn't at least have a theory about in a day or two.

hmm seems odd to me, i believe your assumption might be right, just go ask a tranny place, theyll know for sure an itll be free to ask anyways.
