Just in Reverse

Ok, need your help again.
Put in a new single fly wheel and clutch kit about 1 month ago. Came complete with hardware and new throw out bearing
2 days ago, I put it in reverse and it made a grinding noise. I could feel it to.
But what has me is, if I push in the clutch, put it into any gear ( which is smooth as silk) then, still holding down the clutch, it will go into reverse without any problem at all???
After reading all the posts, I changed the clutch peddle bushings and the clutch slave bushing ( I made a brass bushing for it)
I've checked the fluid, full and clear.
Other wise the truck now shifts really well exept for reverse.
Should I be concerned? Or just keep doing the 3rd gear then reverse shuffle ?

The reverse gear doesn't have a synchronizer to stop it from spinning at a different speed. just get in the habit of shifting from another gear into reverse (while stopped of course) or into a forward gear and then into reverse and you will be fine. In my mind this is nmot a clutch problem. If you come from a forward gear and it grinds going into reverse then your clutch is dragging and needs attention of some sort.

I envy those that know exactly which modification to make and in the most logical of sequences. But not enough to trade for my meanderings and misfires.

Im going of memory here as it was a number of years aog, but I had a ZF trans that did tghat exact same thing- I was able to hold it in R when letting out the clutch and it would work for a while, buit after time it would jump out and grind. I took it to my trans guy who replaced........I think the reverse syncro. I will find out for sure and get back to you.

Kind of tranny fluid? This might sound silly but I run RedLine MTF only in my ZF-5, on one of my trucks years ago thought the syncros where going out as did my ZF rebuilder. Put in the Redline and drove it to almost 300k till I parked it for a parts truck. Had my tranny guy rebuild it and is now in my Red sig truck with Redline in it still runnin strong.

I'm pretty sure my ZF-5 in my 1995 F350 is loosing reverse, I have to physically hold it in reverse with a good bit of force, until I get the clutch half way out will it finally lock in, if I let the clutch out too fast it makes a awful grinding noise, I can feel in through the shifter too, iv only had the truck for 2 weeks and it's a project vehicle, I do not daily drive it nor will I ever, I just want to actually be able to back up without worrying about being stuck facing down a slight downhill grade in a parking lot against a parking block. I have already had to have someone bring my 6.0 to pull me out of a situation exactly like that.

2004 F250 Extended cab long bed XLT FX4, K&N FIPK 2 intake, diamond eye 4" turbo back, SCT Livewire, Zoodad mod, smoke switch. Recon lights front and rear, Mickey Thompson Classis II wheels painted graphite grey, Street Scene roll pan, wrinkle painted grill, white "marker light" strip, led tailgate strip under back window (so semis can see my turn signals when there on my a$$) and smoked 3rd brake light and mirror marker lights.
