Carb gasket?

I was looking last night at the my Qjet and I noticed the gasket at the bottom of the carb looks like it's a layered paper. The layers look like they are coming apart. It's about 1/4 inch thick. Can I get rid of that gasket and replace it with a silicone bead? If I remove the 1/4 will it mess with the air fuel mix?

Regards
Mark

if you put silicone there then you have just glued your carb to your intake, just go buy a new base gasket there only a few bux

Does it have hard plastic doughnuts around all 4 bolt holes? If not, get one that does ('72 Nova w/350 4-bbl., for example). They keep you from warping the throttle plate when you tighten it down. I coat mine on both sides with Permatex Super 300 (or #3 Aviation) liquid & it comes off cleanly & can be reused.
