C-6 tranny not shifting in 3rd

i have a c-6 tranny that will not shift into 3rd gear even at 90mph down the highway for some reason it decided to shift when i got on the gas a little (not touching the kickdown rod) i was holding it in 1st and popped it into second and it went into second and then third (at about 2,200Rpms) the shift lever was still in 2ed gear though! the shifter is a collum shifter and it is a little sloppy so i am wondering if when i put it into drive if it thinks it is in second although neutral works fine. i am stumped i changed the filter and tranny fluid and my dad got a brand new tranny back in 78 when he broke the original one. the new one has less than 500 miles on itand i changed the fluid before i ran it at all. i was just wondering what would be wrong with it i would like to put in a manual shift kit and see if i can force it to shift into 3rd gear, would that be a good idea or not ps it has the stock converter

how well does reverse gear work? Slip? chatter in reverse?

Shift linkage can come loose on the inside of the tranny too
