Check Shifter Linkage

Assuming your gear box was rebuilt with appropriate parts (Synchros, etc) and makes no noticeable noisy when the car is idling in neutral, I would say your shifter is not properly adjusted and is not engaging 3rd gear slider fully.

1. Set the gear box in neutral, push a 1/4" drill bit or rod thru the shifter body engaging all three selectors and going into the rear of the shifter body. You may have to remove the shifter rods from the shifter body in order to do this.

2. Turn the shifter pins on the rods until the rods freely go into the shifter selectors. Reinsert the C clips. This should put your shifter in a neutral position along with the trany. Make sure your nylon bushings are not destroyed. I recommend steel bushings instead of these.

3. Run it thru the gears and see if it engages properly. Last thing to check is the shifter stop bolts on the front and back on the shifter. Ensure they are not turned in fully.

4. To adjust these, pull the shifter into 2nd gear, turn the forward adjuster in until it just engages the shifter selector (feel it move just a bit). Turn it out one turn. Do the same thing on third using the rear adjuster.

For a hurst shifter; the steel bushings mentioned above are in the Hurst Pit Pack. There are 2 different ones, one with steel bushings, the other with delrin ones. Get the steel ones, however, they will add some vibration to the handle, mostly at idle
