The seal should be flush or slightly further in but when installing, the lips should be lubricated and installed with a turning motion to prevent the lips from being turned and allowing the spring to be dislodged.

For the sprocket plates, it should form a sort of camfer for the belt to slip in. The outer edges should be slanted outwards from center.
