Question

Can we not just buy a new ring and pinion gear set for the wavetrac carrier and toss out the old welded carrier?

Seems like a easier route than machining the welded gear set.

Things to consider in your suggestion.
1) The 335d gearing is 2.81:1 and those don't grow on trees.
2) Pretty sure you can't buy the ring gear where it is ground off to right thickness and tapped for the 10 holes needed.
I did this conversion a few years ago so perhaps things might have gotten easier. Check these vendors below.
*) Perhaps contact Mfactory over on the vendor products for sale area.
**) contact Harold at HP Autosport and he might know something as well. this business is in Santa Barbara, CA.
***) contact Matt Whitbread. He does the conversion in house and prices are quite reasonable.
