ZF powersteering pump rebuild

I just finished rebuilding my ZF powersteering pump and with the new seals in it, it seems significantly more difficult to turn.

Two possible reasons I see for this:
1. the new other seal makes better contact with the pump, making it spin less freely.

2. When I was talking it apart, I did not remove the gear guide and it got pushed out by the unit as the spindle was was coming out. I examined this and it just seem to scar the metal under the outer seal, so I did not concern myself with it really.

Finally, in the reseal kit from **********.biz, there was a metal ring that I did not use as I could not figure out where it went. Any ideas?

Thanks, Bill
