that sounds like a plan to me... if its still doing it, Ive got a couple questions...
1.) clutch pedal smooth all the way through the swing? If not check the bushing, fairly common, lil plastic bushing tends to wear out. Used to sell them in a 2 pack for like $5 at ford, or you can pull the assembly and drill it and replace the whole bushing set up with a bolt and washers...
2.)does it grind every time going to 4th/reverse or just once in awhile?
As for the 3rd gear issue, sounds like the clutch isn't fully engaging, and i'll once again have to reference you to question 1.
The bushing is the easy fix, if its not that, then we need to start looking toward the mechanics of the clutch and pumps and what not. Nice part about the manual transmissions, not much can go wrong with them, diagnostics on them are simple.
