Exhaust gasket

I noticed my aliens 824 with Tecumseh engine was not running well, so I took off the cover to get to the carb, and the carb just fell right off. No gasket , no screws holding carb. We have a storm coming in tonight, can I just mount the carb without the gasket with some screws I have in my cellar, until I can get gasket and correct screws on Monday?
Do I really need gasket
Thanks Barry

If the carb fell off it should not run at all. Are you talking about the muffler gasket? Have you got a cereal box? Make a gasket to get you by, it will not run properly without a carb gasket

Roy, he did say it was an aliens, maybe they are different that the engines on an Ariens? 
 
Just pulling your leg Barry! Bet "auto-correct" got you on that one!
 
I was going to suggest the same thing for a temp gasket.
