Default No gears when shifting into 3rd at high rpms?

Hey guys new here with a question. I have a 1990 5.0 w/ stock T-5 and a king cobra clutch. When I go to shift into 3rd gear from 2nd at 5500-6000rpm there is nothing there. 3rd gear feels like neutral and if I try to go into any other gear, nothing. Then after 10-15 seconds all my gears are back and it drives normal.

Shifts from 1st to 2nd just fine at 5500-6000rpm and if I shift into 3rd at 5000rpm or less it goes in with no problem. Its only in the 5000rpm+ range that all gears feel like neutral.

Any ideas? Kinda hard to describe but hopefully someone has an idea. Thanks for any help!

-Nick

Give a guess, clutch hanging on input shaft, reason weak pressure plate or lack of lubricant or crud buildup so clutch hangs....Another guess will be to take out transmission and have a look see at shifter and shift rails. Have to pull transmission to look at clutch issues so can inspect it all.
