SB lathe cant change hi/low gear???

Hi guys, I was looking into getting a south bend 3 1/2 metal lathe for $1000

the seller told me he keeps it in a none heated garage. and when I asked if all is working fine. he said he can't get it out of the one gear to try to get into the other .
says the oil maybe is cold and thats why.. is this something I should walk away from? or is it a easy fix? any help would be great asap
