MTX75 3rd gear grind

Recently had an issue on my 14 Focus. 3rd gear started grinding at 70k. Pulled the trans and rebuilt both shafts in the trans. I recently put it back together and 3rd still grinds. I put maybe 20 miles since rebuilt. Not sure where to look towards at this point. Synchros, throw out bearing?

I've read a lot that the 3rd gear synchro is the weak point of this transmission.

Possibly a worn shift fork, with too much clearance where it goes on the syncro. Consider another teardown to inspect that, or buy a used transmission from a junkyard
