Yours sounds like the coupler moved and just needs to be repositioned correctly.

The other current thread - the guy missed 3rd gear and had it partially selected so the synchro was being compressed and trying to match the gearset speed to the shaft speed so they could engage smoothly and the selector teeth on the slider and gearset were bouncing over each other grinding themselves under full throttle and he probably destroyed the 3rd gear synchro or selector teeth on the slider and gearset doing it.

Do a search on gearshift coupler and you'll find threads on how to re set the coupler correctly.
It takes patience and maybe trial and error till you get it right.
The easy part is the lower half of the shift rod before it bends back should be straight up vertical while the transmission is in nuetral.
The side to side part of the "H" adjustment can be the tricky part or you may get it right the first time.
