Transmission or clutch grinding only going into second

(1991 Ford Ranger)
Just bought this 1991 4.0 4x4 ranger and it grinds only when I shift into second gear. Not always but 7 out of 10 times it does. And I am not able to downshift into second either. What can the problem and be and what are the solutions? help please?

Sounds like a worn 2nd gear syncro. I have been down this road before with this transmission.

Secondly - the clutch slave cylinders chronically fail on these transmissions. Insufficient clutch pressure can cause the issue too.
