86 Corolla exhaust leak

I have an exhaust leak at the exhaust manifold and head of my 86 Corolla. I can only get to a couple of the exhaust bolts. The others are covered by a heat shield at the base of the carburetor. Seems like I will have to remove the carburetor to gain access to these other bolts.

When reinstalling the carburetor, will I need to also install new gaskets, or insulator block between the carburetor and intake?

It's always a good idea to replace gaskets that are disturbed. As long as that's been bolted together there's a good chance it will stick to one surface or the other and come apart in pieces. The spacer block should be reusable as long as you clean off any remnants of old gasket.

The answer to that is yes you need a gasket there. I would put a new one there. I would first look at the old one and make sure it is in good shape and nothing is stuck on the manifold you might be able to reuse it but just spring for a new one as they are pretty cheap.
