I find getting it started, and then putting the cover on works. You just need to work the cover a bit by hand to get it to seat the diaphragm.
The cover will not sit flush unless the diaphragm is seated, so you'll know if it's in.

I use a little silicone dialectric grease around the edge on the o-ring part of them, aids in sealing and longevity.

you need to replace it.
the diaphragms get distorted, from gas addatives, age, etc. i WOULD NOT run a diaphragm like that. we see it here, from ethonal all the time.

I agree change the diaphrams(all three). Diaphrams are critical to fuel delivery!!! I was having trouble with an outboard motor that ran great for a while but if you shut it off and tried to restart it wouldn't without full choke. Turned out the fuel pump diaphram was getting saturated and soft causing it to not get the fuel pressure up to what it needed to start. After a new diaphram in the pump, runs and restarts like a new one.
