My 2 cents.
If the clutch is engaging properly and is engaged when you run the engine in neutral, I suspect the problem is not your clutch.
About 15 years ago I had 140,000 on my 1984 Toyo Base truck. It started grinding when I had the clutch pushed in and selected reverse, the only gear not synchronized. Turned out the pressure plate was worn and would not completely disengage. New clutch fixed the problem.
Sounds more like a gearbox problem.
