5th & Reverse problem

Need some help! I have a 1989 Ranger extended cab v-6, 5-spd with 126,000. I have had the normal problems with the clutch master & slave and both have been replaced along with the clutch in the past 6 months. My new problem is that it will not shift into 5th or reverse even if the motor is not running. The clutch works and I can use 1 4 without issue. Is there a known problem with the shifting linkage or should I be revisiting the master/slave again?

Thanks for your help!
And yes I did a search before I posted
