Either of 2 things:  Shifter fork on 
inside of side cover is worn out, or your input shaft splines to syncro drum 
are worn.  That one would mean finding a better syncro drum and input shaft.  
I wrote an article about this a few  weeks ago and sent it to Vintage 
Chevrolet Club of Am.  I asume you already adjusted the linkage for complete 
engagement of high gear.
You can inspect the fork by removing side cover without removing trans from
