Your assembly is correct. Sprocket-rubber-spokes-rubber-metal plates. Preferably the teeth on the sprocket should be to the outside if you have dished sprocket. This will give you maximum chain to frame and rear tire clearance. Good luck.
i got the bike upside down and using its forks to hold it n spin it, i had the teeth on the inside originally, thats why i redid it, tomorrow i'll be finishing it up trying it the way cannonball said since i can't get the 4 n 5 piece rings to fit properly, his idea seems like it mite work better. thanks foor all the advice everyone.
