One of my 3-speeds kept popping out of 2nd and 3rd gear, and all I did 
was put the shift lever in the neutral position and got down by the 
shift linkage levers (the 2 shift arms) on the tranny and saw that the 
lever for the 2nd and 3rd gear was out of place and didn't line up with 
the first and reverse lever (in neutral). So I loosened the shift lever 
linkage to line everything up and it never popped out of 2nd gear. You 
might want to check your linkage and make sure it's not loose and didn't 
move on you, if that doesn't do it maybe it's a bad syncro???

Mine use to pop out of first and reverse also, and it was from a worn 
down first and reverse gear and a chipped tooth. I went to my favorite 
junk yard that's hooked up to a bunch of other junk yards (on a 
network). They found a 3-speed tranny for my 3/4 ton and had it shipped 
down here from N. California for only $75 bucks! Opened it up and it 
looked brand new on the inside. That place is called Whittier Auto 
Dismantling and Transmission here in whittier, california.
Hope this helps,
