help reading gear codes!

Hey, just got my auburn posi and 3.73 gears in the mail. Overall the quality looks good, although 2 of the teeth on the ring gear are alightly chipped, but I don't think it will be a big problem (correct me if I am wrong). Anyway, I'm looking at the ring gear (smooth side of it) and there is some numbers and letters stamped into it and I'm trying to figure out what they mean. I'm thinking it is the ID for the gears. Here is what it says:

E37W AB 1141 3MA

Anyone know what this means? Also, would I see any problems with 2 of the teeth slightly chipped on the ring gear? Like I said...it doesn't look bad, just wondering what I could expect.

I wouldn't use chipped gears in my car...but that may just be me. Can't be good for them.

pics

Hey, there is only a chip in 1 tooth of the gear and a slight one on the bottom of a tooth next to it. Bottom one is really hard to notice. Let me know what you think and if there may be problems with the gears. All pics are of the same tooth at different angles and whatnot.

is it on the side of the ring gear? should have a 327 in it some where if thats their ratio.. just count the teeth. Do you have a 99+ ? Those may be perfectly fine its the risk you take on trying used items.

It doesn't say 373 on any of the parts for the gear? Any other way I can find this out?
