I've not ever used any. Check the mating surfaces with a straight edge to insure they are flat. I've heard of them getting bent but have not personally encountered that. Jim C. has used a flat file to even them out.
There is a phenolic spacer that sits between the intake manifold and the carb. This spacer has a build in gasket - do not try to remove it.
