Rebuilt T5, 4th gear grinds only

Its been awhile since I have posted but I did an AOD to T5 swap last fall with a used t5. On a nice day in January I took it for a ride. When i shifted into 3rd gear after leaving the light right outside my house, I heard a crunch and then rattling inside my trans. Anyway, I decided to buy a rebuilt trans from someone locally who claims that he tests them at 2400 rpm prior to selling them. I had a buddy install it for me and immediately it grinds when going into 4th gear. Both upshifting and downshifting. Now there were other sounds as well. There is a tapping sound somewhere that used to disappear once the clutch was engaged but now only gets a little less quiet when the clutch is engaged. With the tranny "rebuilt", do you think it could be a bad pilot bearing? I've heard that 4th is 1:1 so a bad pilot bearing could make it grind into 4th. Any thoughts or help would be appreciated before I call up the tranny guy and raise hell. Thanks
