no reverse

Hi I'm new to the site and I'm having problems with my 1983 diesel ford ranger (150k) with the reverse. I was driving it around earlier today and when I put it in reverse it worked fine the when I parked it I tries to backup and nothing happened I took my foot off the clutch and it seemed to be in neutral like nothing happened to I was wondering if anybody had any insight on it thanks a lot

Do you have any forward gears? Specifically 2nd? It and reverse are usually the same gear if I remember correctly.

Garage
Check that the drive shaft is turning or not in reverse. If it is, then check the rear axle.
