Any small engine repair place should give you your answer, they are about all the same.

Understanding how it works helps. The pump flaps seal on the carb body. If you put the gasket between the diaphragm and the body, there will be a space there and the flaps won't seal. It's really simple once you know, but I made that mistake once.

so what you are saying is the gasket goes up against the carb body right? With the diaphram against the cover. TAZZZZ

I found the schematic. It shows the diaphragm goes on top of the gasket against the cover.
