To answer your question better...
The 2 small o-rings:
One goes on the bolt, the other larger one goes on the center stub of the top housing. You can't mess these up.
The 3 large gaskets:
One is slightly fatter and larger diameter than the others. This one goes in the groove of the top housing. DO NOT put it on top of the filter. To see the WRONG way, go here:
CAV filters
Use one of the two other gaskets for the bottom of the element to the bottom bowl.
The 3rd gasket is for use on tractors that have an additional glass, water separating bowl under the element. Not used on boats.
