strange third gear problem

like it says when im in 3rd gear after 2100 rpms their seems to be a rotating not grinding sound but i cant discribe it. I'll shift in to 4th gear and there is no problem, same with all the other gears. I think it is the tranny but its pretty much a brand new T-18a tranny. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Could it be that your spinning a gear along with third inside the tranny? if so could be a bad syncro or missing a keeper pin on a gear
