Inlet seat question

Does this carb require the rubber seat. It looks to have a gold bushing insert which Im not used to seeing. And when I add the rubber seat the needle and float sit way off. I checked the obvious. It was pushed in all the way and there isn't already one stuck in there.. Any help would be great!

How about 2 side view pics,, one with just the float & needle installed, & one with adding the rubber seat, ''or what ever they were made out of''... Think it's Neoprene or something like that....
I do remember though, from moonlighting in small engine shops years ago,, that the smooth side of that seat, was supposed to face the needle.
It is a Tec. carb, right ?
