Dam you third gear!!!

Hi all, I hope someone with some knowledge can help me out.

As per the title 3rd gear is really starting to p!ss me off. I've recently changed the gearbox and clutch, previous gearbox had a knackered third gear and ruined my box. Unfortunately the new gearbox is making the same crunching/grinding noise when you initially select it.

Could this be down to the linkages?? I'm not too sure what else it could be? All the other gears select fine

Maybe a worn synchromesh on 3rd gear and/or to slippery/thick gearbox oil, you could try a straight 75W gearbox oil as Quaker State SUPER QUADROLUBE 75W and see if it helps.
