39 Special starter ring gear wanted!

I need a good or at least flipable flywheel ring gear for a 39 Special 248. Mine looks to have already been flipped, and it's in bad shape! On or off the flywheel!

 Larry, I was able to clean up the leading edges of the teeth on my '50. I used a 3" hand held grinder with a thin grinding disk.  Several thousand miles and still going.

Thanks for the tip, Ben. Mine is really bad, with half of the teeth missing in spots ( where it usually stops!). It also looks to have been flipped before. I'm sure it'll be a big project, but worth the trouble, as I have a few leaks that will also get adressed on the way. I think I might have a picture some where, and if I find it, I'll post it.
