Hi fathercuda, This grinding noise you have is it consistant through 1-3 in other words is it just when it goes into gear or all the way through to your next shift? also when in neutral do you hear it and if so when you push on the clutch does it stop? This could be a throw out bearing or sincro mesh problem, I am leaning towards the throw out bearing,not a hard fix but a bit of work involved please get back to me with the requested information and see if we can resolve this issue for you good luck
