I put the o ring on the inside of my bucket. I would say that it doesn't really matter as long as it doesn't leak. Test it with a significant amount of water. I did a bottling batch and tested with about 2 gallons of water. When there was about 3 gallons of beer transferred it started dripping.

For the extract you need to use all the LME that is called for. I did one where there were a lot of hop additions late so I put some in at 60 and more at 30 20 10 and 5. Really just stopping the LME addition to add the hops at the proper times. It turned out great, and lighter in color that all at the boil start.
