Dumb rear wheel question

Changed my rear tire today. Removed the sprocket carrier. I have the rubber blocks in the correct orientation (took a picture before removing) but I can't seem to get the carrier to mate flush with the hub. I assume its supposed to? Or was there a gap I just never took note of?

Thanks...

It will compress more as you torque the rear nut down, but it doesn't sit flush. I was wondering the same thing the first time mucked around with it.

God Bless,
David

+1. And it probably helps the longevity of the cush if its a long term lube that keeps the cush from sticking to the hub or sprocket carrier. It certainly won't hurt, at least.

As long as the goo you use isn't bad for the rubber...
