yes there is a o-ring already in the carb as u can see in the pictures
would it not go like this
carb
o-ring
spacer
o-ring
paper gasket
intake manifold
maybe not just in the picture of the manifold i thought the paper gasket goes there or would the spacer and o-ring be enough would it be stupid the way i said?

There would be no reason for an O-ring to seat against a fibre gasket.

Sort of silly that way
A gasket would stop an o ring sealing
An o ring would stop a gasket sealing

The gasket will go on the intake manifold toward the block

The fuel inlet needle should be retained to the float with some sort of clip.
