ZF S542

Just rebuilt the ZF S5-42 Transmission in my one ton Dually.
New input shaft, main bearings, seals, synchronizers.

All went together great got the slack out of the main shaft with a shim kit so everything fit perfect.

Started the truck up and it sounded so quiet I wasn't sure it was even turning.

Test drive lasted to 3rd gear were I started to hear a growl like the synchronizers were grinding but it went into third no problem. Noise continued into 4th and 5th although the shifting was perfect.

Just finished pulling it back apart and can't see anything wrong visually

Any ideas.

Edited once for quality assurance.

Also the noise goes away as soon as I lock in the 2nd gear synchro or the 1st no noise in reverse either.
