Selector or gear failed. Get the box repaired. Or find another one.

if you can't select 1st at the gearbox itslef then the fault is inside - so either a selector or a shift dog or something. Open it up is pretty much the only choice.

If you drained it completely then you need to fill the box with 2.3 litres. If you aren't sure, fill the box until the oil starts to drip out of the filler hole.
