Wipe some spit on the inside of that rubber before you try stuffing the carb in. I use a slight twisting motion back and forth as I'm pushing the carb on.

It's easy for that seal to "roll up" a little bit, reducing the inside diameter. The first time I reinstalled my carb it looked fine, but wasn't fully seated. As I pushed the carb into place, the seal moved out of place. Make sure the seal is fully tight against the manifold.

A little bit of dish soap to lube the seal works . I've never had much trouble with these but when the fit seems tight the soap trick works , it doesn't take much

I use a mild solution of dish soap and water to help the intake manifold rubber gaskets seat too. Works good on rubber. No leaks

OK ... I'll ask why are you thinking the breather bolts was have an effect?
