Noisy Richmond Gear 5 speed

Hi all,

I need some assistance for a temporary fix. I have a Richmond Gear 5 speed about 8 years old and it has a noise. The noise is ONLY under a load. It goes away when I depress the clutch at any speed. It does it in any gear but is louder in 5th. I would like to prolong the tear down by 3000 miles. Would it help if I added a couple tubes of anti-seize to the trans? Again I just need a temporary fix, I'll tear it down this winter but we are real busy right now.

Thanks for your considered opinion.
