Exclamation 1992 Mustang Transmission Problem! Won't go into gear after running awhile?

my transmition will not go into gear after the car has ran for a while maby 15-20 then it seems like the clutch is burnent out when it is cold and it starts it will go into gear no problem and it will drive like normal but after a about 10-20 minits it starts acting up. i converted it from a auto to a 5 speed it is a 1992 2.3 with a 1989 2.3 5 speed the bell housing is a 1992 also the pedals are from a 1992everything for the conversion is from the same car except for the trans and drive shaft they are both from the same car ass well. the clutch, preasure plate, throughout bearing, fly wheel, and both clutch cables 2" and 60" are all new can anybode tell me what might be the problem.

will it not go into any gear or is it going in and the clutch not engaging?

sounds to me like you might have gotten a weak pressure plate

it is possible that you got the wrong clutch but the bellhousings and trans are all the same as long as the bell is for a 2.3
