Well there was quite a high spot on the sprocket and as it turned out it was right over that 3rd joint.
As it turns out the whole thing has to come apart any way because there is a clearance issue with chain and tire ( flat sprocket ) so I was thinking of putting an extra piece of rubber between the out side rag joint and the sprocket. Also think I will order a Manic Mechanic sprocket adaptor latter this week.
Couple of pics to help explain.
Dude scrap it and start again either with creative's hub adapter or start again with a new rag joint do not cut it! if they overlap pry it with a screwdriver. Also there is no need for the metal 3 peice on the other side of the sprocket as the sprocket does this job. I did the same but found that the 2 piece and the 3 peice go over each other inside the hub then the rubber pieces then the sprocket.
