I feel the best, although there other ways to solve the problem, is to keep the dust (I see you made a correction) cover intact. I used my drill press to do the trick, as it alleviates the need to center the sprocket on the hub. Just slides over the dust cover. Same thing for the hub should you need too. Don't forget to bevel the teeth, so the teeth don't have sharp edges. Makes for a much smoother chain movement.
