Rebuilding Idle Sprocket

I rebuilt my idle sprocket last night, it went pretty well. I cleaned the bearings, sprocket, and the gear stopper thing. I'm not sure what they are called but it's the little pieces that stops the sprocket from moving backwards. 
bearings, springs, and gear stoppers soaking in carb cleaner

Once all the bearings are greased up it should be pretty easy to flip the
sprocket over  with out losing any bearings
I'm not sure what these are called but they seem to hold down the
clips that stop the sprocket from moving backwards and the screw cap.
Installing the clip things I was just referring to
and now the 3 ring covers

Adding grease to the screw cap

After that I screwed the cap on (counter clock wise) and tapped it tight then spun it around a couple dozen times and wiped all the excess grease that seeped out.
