Noisey Saginaw 4spd

I have a Saginaw 4spd in my '73 Chevy that tends to be noisey. The best I can descibe the sound is a faint but certainly audible "gear rattle". Its fairly muted when cold but gets louder when its up to temperature. Its constant during cruising regardless of which gear its in. The tranny was rebuilt with new bearings, blocker rings, wave washers, roller bearings etc. and the noise is still present. All parts were carefully checked over and it was rebuilt by the book. It shifts fine, doesn't jump out of gear but this constant "rattle" persist. Its not the shifter, u-joints or rear end either. Any ideas? Thanks.
