Transmission Problems

I have a almost stalk 1957 CJ5 it has a T90 3 Speed transmission. Yesterday I put it into revers to pull out of a parking spot. When I let the clutch out it really bogged down the engine. when i out the clutch back in it would make a bit of a slight grinding noise and come to a complete stop almost immediately. In gears 1-3 there seams to be a bit of a grind but not as much as revers. It shifts through the gears as normal only makes the grinding noise when the clutch is in and when in revers.

I am thinking Clutch or throwout bearing. Any thoughts, am I on the right track?

Thanks

Could springs cause it to be worse in revers?

Yes, reverse has no syncro.
It could also be a T/O bearing or release fork issue.
Check your linkage for damage too.
