#2. You’re just putting a bandaid on a problem that will come back to bite you. If the surfaces are clean and straight, it won’t leak, if something is warped now is a good time to fix it. Are you sure it is the carb to mani connection and not your carb shafts?
#3. Did you replace the condenser?
All the best,

After all that cranking are the plugs wet? If it is sucking on the tape it should be pulling fuel.
[DT] didn’t check the plug after being tapped, on the list now 😊
Best place to start with your carb setting is 1.5 turns(9 flats) from fully closed, that will get you running and you can adjust from there.
[DT] ah perfect
No need for any sealant around the intake manifold or carb mounting. If your surfaces are clean and in good shape, gaskets are all you need.
[DT] even if they suck in starter fluif when carbs are tapped off? They were clean when re-assembled….
Coil? Try it but since it will run on the staring fluid it’s probably OK. But maybe weak.
[DT] My thought is the weaker coil. The spark light was blinking as expected but not very strong
