Either that - or the collar didn't go in far enough and it's leaking between the collar and shaft, but normally, when you put your sprocket on it should definitely seat the collar properly on the oring.

Now having checked all those things I used brake cleaner to clean the case really good to see just how much is leaking. The other thing is just how sensitive are those seals. If it was not perfectly even all around the shaft would it leak?

The square cutouts on the inner end of the collar don't need to be oriented in any particular way, but the O-ring does need to be in the groove in the shaft, and as pointed out, the sprocket must be bolted on.
Just workin on the bike now, do the indents on the collar need to align with the oiling holes in the shaft or should they be covered by the collar, or does it matter???

What happened was the seal was in just a "hair" too far and the inner lip of the seal was over the cut outs in the collar. If anything, I would recommend the seal be just a hair out before being flush with the case, this seemed more in the center of the collar.
