Carb rebuild identification help

I bought this Carb rebuild kit but it didn’t list part numbers for any of the parts nor did it list what they were. I have circled the ones in blue that I could not identify based off online breakdowns. If you know off the top of your head and could help me out I’d appreciate it!

Among other things, looks like the spring/washer/o-ring for the pilot air mixture screw.

Am I correct in my findings that the proper order for the mixture screw is Screw/Spring/Washer/O-ring??

Yes, and it should come out of the carb that way. If not, make sure you find all those parts or confirm that they weren't there to begin with.

It all came out of the carb just not together. The spring came with the screw but the washer and o-ring fell out so I wasn't 100% on their order, thanks for clearing that up. Any idea by chance what the bigger o-ring and 2 smaller but thicker flat faced O-rings could be for? I found a flat faced o-ring in the cover for the accelerator diaphragm but it seems to be a bit bigger in size than the 2 included in the kit.

It's not jumping out at me, no. I've also never had an 800 carb apart, so that's not helping.

This is my go-to for any disassembly/reassembly. I go to the Service Manual for specs and the parts diagrams to know what bits go where so I have no parts left over after I'm done the job!
