Re: Gearbox issues car related or bad rebuild?

I'm assuming you mean the gear teeth were worn away. This would suggest insufficient oil, as 6th is the last to get any with a splash lubricated box. Could also indicate a poor build if the shaft end-float was excessive, or the gears didn't match. Getting them too close together should be impossible, but bearing wear can cause such issues.

It had been installed 6 months before so bearings should be fine n loads of oil this has happened to 2 boxes in under a year no one can figure why
