Screeching noise when I hit 6th Gear

A little more information would help.

Does it screech continuously in 6th or just when it goes into that gear?

Does the sound change with speed and RPM?

How does throttle affect it? Louder when accelerating or when coasting?

Don't know if it would relate, but I once had a 4 sped mopar trans that did the same thing in top gear only. More RPM made it worse. Trans shop said it was rear main bearing because all the stress goes to that bearing in top gear. I replaced that bearing & they were right. Problem solved.
