Replace reverse gears?

A few years ago at the Pittsburgh Vintage Gran Prix, I was parked on the lawns and had to back out of a spot. Backing up, uphill in the grass, I heard a horrible noise from the back. Ever since, my Alfetta has had an ugly rough noise while backing up. It worked on the level pavement but was terrified of backing up under any load.

I finally got the gearset out today and see there is a broken tooth on the mainshaft reverse gear. Obviously Ill need a replacement. What about the idle gear and the driven shaft reverse gears? There is clearly wear and some damage, but since reverse isnt used like the other gears, do they need replaced?
