well i just got my car back with rebuilt engine and i had the tranny gone through to. it only has been 2000 miles (a little less) and all of the sudden, it has started to grind when shifting to third. i dont think its the clutch because its only 3rd gear, but i could be wrong. i was thinking syncro or something. what do you guys think?

Yeah, sounds like your 3rd gear blocker is gone. If you get it fixed, replace ALL the blockers (syncros). The complete set is about $130. Just make sure you take it to a Mech. that KNOWS M5R2 trannys!!!!!!! Don't let just any old Ford garage do it. Talk to your local SC guys & find out who they trust.

I'm lucky, the Best Damn SC mechanic is Mich. works about 20 miles from me. When I take my car in there, I Always tell the Service Manager, "NOBODY but Darak Touches my car"!!!!!!
