I have a 1941 Chevy 6 cyl truck. It has a 3 speed in the floor. I just had all the bearings, pressure plate and throwout bearings replaced last year. Also pretty much had the tranny rebuilt. Im now having an issue of it popping out of high gear when I do not have a load on the engine. When load is on engine, it is fine. Other than that, the tranny is smooth and works fine. Any thought or suggestions on what could be causing this would be greatly appreciated.

There are a number of things that can cause a transmission to jump out of gear.
A worn shift fork, bad bearings, bad pilot bushing, or misalignment.
I have a blog post that explains this more.
