Ring Gear Chip

Thanks for the fast reply. My hot rod is sitting on stands awaiting the resolution of this. The longer gash is into the gear mating surface, but is not very deep. It certainly is into the metal, no JB; I am familiar with that stuff. It looks like someone dropped the gear on something hard then took a grinder to it to smooth off a burr (the chip at the edge) and missed and hit the gear face. I took a better picture.
I just don't want to go through all the hassle of putting it in if its' going to give me fits down the road.
