Take the carb off! And x5 on what everyone's said about OEM gaskets for the manifold. What year is your 2F? There are a number of differences. CAREFULLY check the gaskets that go between the insulator and the carb and the intake and exhaust. I *think* the latter is now unobtanium but there may be a few floating around he parts system. I know what Marco wrote about machining the intake and exhaust as a pair flat is widely accepted, but 2 of the 3 bolts that hold the intake to the exhaust go into the aluminum intake and are prone to stripping the aluminum threads.

Don't ask me why I know this...
