Starting with the cover, here is the order

Cover, gasket, diaphragm (solid one), pump body, pump spring, spring cap, check valve spring (upper, goes on pump body) pump diaphragm, check valve spring (Lower goes on carburetor body).

I may be able to dig up an illustration if you can't figure it out by my description, just let me know.

Best of Luck....

And yes...remove the electric pump. Don't allow the pump to come on once you've replaced the carb parts or you may wind up damaging the new diaphragm.
