just rip it apart take the whole thing right out(pinion, spider the whole shabang) clean it very well, mat the spidr gears together, take a grinder to where they meet(dont take to much off;just a clean surface)
tac weld four to six points always going to the opposit side every tac weld.
then slowly make full welds making sure not to warp anything.
PS cover the pinion with a wet rag so not ot get spatter on it.Hope this helps

What ratio is it? If its 410, I will sell you one that is already all welded and ready to go for $50. Ran it for 2 seasons without any issues.
