1980 SC fifth gear woes

I recently acquired a 1980 911 SC and have found the transmission intermittently hangs up in fifth gear. The car appears to shift flawlessly, but once in a while I experience difficulty pulling the transmission out of fifth. It usually comes out eventually, after multiple attempts, but sometimes it requires way more force than should be necessary and I'm afraid to use excessive force. All linkage bushings are new and the car has a Stomski shift coupler. As a consequence, I have been avoiding use of that gear. I would greatly appreciate any input as to what might be the cause.
