That bearing is out of play in third, so if it's perfectly quiet in third, you might need to check that bearing, and the end of the shaft it rides on.
Tom may very well have the source of the noise pinned down. Mine did the same in 1st and 2nd and was quiet in 3rd. When I pulled it apart that bearing was toast. Replaced it and the shaft and all is quiet now. I would suggest replacing all of the bearings if you tear it down.
