good to hear u got it running right
when someone is saying a "dished sprocket" they are refferring to the set of teeth that are flanged out as in the pic here... http://www.ebay.ca/itm/9-Hole-44-Too...-/370705179139
that sprocket is laying "dish" up.
some sprockets are totally flat, but thats mostly aftermarket. dont think i seen a kit sprocket that is flat.
