Exhaust gasket

I noticed my aliens 824 with Tecumseh engine was not running well, so I took off the cover to get to the carb, and the carb just fell right off. No gasket , no screws holding carb. We have a storm coming in tonight, can I just mount the carb without the gasket with some screws I have in my cellar, until I can get gasket and correct screws on Monday?
Do I really need gasket
Thanks Barry

It does need a gasket. In a pinch you could make a gasket from some thin cardboard if you don't have gasket material.

Iím confused title if post says exhaust gasket and content says machine was running poorly without screws for carburetor. Been doing this too long and have yet to see a machine run with out carb attached. Have seen motors run without muffler attached.

Most Techumseh 8&10hp motors don't have exhaust gaskets.

Yes the carb was held on to the exhaust by the black cover. Just put it together without gasket and started it up, runs like new, before it was surging and running rough, but if they donít even come with gaskets, then ....job done

If your saying there was no gasket for the carb to the engine. It does need one. If your in a crunch, just buy a roll of gasket material and make one. I don't even buy them anymore, I just cut them out myself. I have a gasket punch set from Harbor Freight and use an Exacto knife. Not hard to do at all.

???? The carb doesn't attach to the exhaust in any way. Might you mean the head, which has both an intake and an exhaust port?
