I doubt you will hurt anything by running it, but there are no guarantees.
Given what you've stated, my guess is that a band 1 strut has dropped or the band is broken. It should require a rear split to fix this.

If this is the scenario, you likely will have limited or no function in R2,3,4,7,8 &10.

That's what I was afraid of....
Is the band available? It doesn't seem to show up in the New Holland online parts database.

The tractor creeps in those gears but has no power - exactly like you'd expect from a brake band not working. The other gears work well though.

How expensive are the parts typically to do a rebuild on one of these? (assuming wear parts only, ie clutches and bands, no hard parts) Is it feasible for a home shop or a dealer only type job?

I can tell you that anything you do to a Ford or NH is more expensive than it ought to be.
As far as parts availability and pricing, I could look that up for you, but you can do it as well.
One with an aptitude for mechanics, an attention to detail, the proper service manuals and tools can do this job. It is not, however, for the faint hearted nor the fly by night.
