1998 KLR 250 Water pump seal

Hi, Ive been working on my bike the past few days and i cant remember for the life of me how the oil seal goes back in. I don't understand what this metal piece is and I need some assistance on what to do with the oil seal and mechanical seal. If any one can respond quickly that would be great. The photo attached is the questionable metal rim...yes i may have bent and damaged it a bit :/ butt the rubber oil seal doesn't fit in there.

I am not familiar with your bike but here is a link to an exploded diagram. I hope that helps. Your pic didn't come through. This forum requires a new member to post 15 times before they can post a link or picture. It is an anti spam device.

Looks like the open/ucup side goes into the engine first.

Thanks for adding his pic Tom! It looks like part of the oil seal is still in the engine cavity. Is that what it looks like to you?

I can't really tell from the picture if the seal is still in the engine. I'm not familiar with KLR250s, so I'm not sure what the issue is.
