This leak is being caused by the o-ring not seated properly.
Remove the o-ring and put some silicone lubricant on it to help it seal.

Fuel pump leak

Looks like it may be a fuel return line from the fuel manifold . It may be split or loose . Probably both . Get a new section of fuel hose and some good clips and replace it

I dropped the lid to the pentair 320 chlorinator for inground pools. The rubber gasket fell out and I don't know where it goes nor does it fit inside the lid. Do the gaskets go inside to screw on lid...

Yes, the o-ring does swell up. I am not really sure what causes that, but the only fix is to replace it. It goes inside the cap. Only use teflon or silicone based lube on it.

The motor and filter seem to be ok, but can't get it to prime. Everything is working,just very little water pumping into filter.

It sounds like you have a suction leak or a clogged impeller. A quick way to check the impeller is to fill the pump pot (where the basket is) with water, then start the pump with the lid OFF. The water should be sucked down into the pump immediately. Turn the pump off. If it took more than about half a second for the water to disappear you need to open the pump and clear the debris from the impeller.
Otherwise any leak from the skimmer to the pump will cause the problem. Make sure your pump lid o-ring is lubricated.

Pump is leaking from the cap

If the water is leaking from the trap lid then the o-ring is not properly set or the lid is cracked.
Try using some silicone based lube on the o-ring and then reset the lid making sure the o-ring is properly resting on the outer lip of the pump pot.

Just replaced my Emerson 2hp pool motor. Turned on new motor all is working fine but water isn't filling the basket?

First of all you need to fill the pot with water. it is best to pour a bucket in or use a hose and turn the pump on and off real quick a couple times to **** some water into the pump. Once you do that fill the basket as much as possible and quickly put the lid on and turn on (make sure your lid o-ring is there and in good shape. lubricate it with pool lube so it's wet but not all gooped up). when you turn the pump on you should see water either splash, or at least start trickling into the pot. if you see water splash in, but then go dry again, or if it just trickles but doesn't prime after about 20 or 30 seconds, then you may very likely have an air leak on the suction side. Make sure your lid is sealed, the pipe goin into pump is not loose or leaking air, and make sure the pool cleaner hose is not out of the water, or the skimmer sucking air. If the pipe coming into the pump is sucking air or you suspect it might be try wrapping black electrical tape tightly all around the joint (where it threads into the pump). This is temporary troubleshooting step but works great. If there is a union or a Jandy valve where the pipe comes into the pump check o-rings and all joints for leaks.

My model 603 filter pump leaks at the top under cap

It could be the o-ring on this model. There is a seal on these pool filters that looks like a rubber ring inside the lid. You might need to replace this ring if your pump is leaking here.

The pump should not shut itself off unless you have one of the newer 2 speed 2 phase pumps witch has its own proming mode. However a reason for loosing prime can be a simple pump lid O ring. It can also be the valves on the intake side of the pump. Try getting the pump going and the switch it off look and listen for leaks or air leaks you can either replace the needed O ring or apply 100% silicone to the leaking area with the pump on and that will seal the leak. Leave the pump running for 8 hours if using silicone. First start off by lubing the pump lid O ring you can use Vaseline.

Leaks water in the counter.

I fixed mine for 25p... you need to take the back off, and the tank holder out (2 screws each). There is a very thin pipe that comes out the pump - that is the leak.
Unclip the little clip and pull out the pipe and fish out the black o-ring out the hole.
Buy a new o-ring and put back together... no leaks =)
