223 I/E gaskets replaced -Problem Persists=Updated

What is the process? Should they be taken apart from each other under the carb or leave that be? Leave the exhaust attached or risk taking it off and stud breakage? Is there a torque spec and pattern?
Any tricks I should be aware of?

There's one thing misleading in the intake manifold pic, it appears to only shows one carburetor base gasket.

But if you look closely at the inside, there are 6 total of: B6A-9447-B

What is the purpose of the six? Mine as found and currently only had one. Does it affect how it runs?

To insulate the carb from exhaust manifold heat.

Ok I have it disassembled. And now questions.
First, there was no gasket between the intake and exhaust at the heat riser chamber. The gasket kit came with a gasket, that doesn't fit. It's kind of the right shape, but too large/long. Three bolts fit, but the gasket hangs over and there is an extra bolt hole in it. Do I need a gasket there at all?

Second, the gasket kit came with a modern gasket. Do I still need the rings, or are those no longer used with the new style gasket? Are the torque specs the same with the modern style gasket?

I just replaced my intake and exhaust gaskets as I was installing a rebuilt head. Mine too had no gasket between the two and I did not install a gasket going back together. I have started mine since and have seen no issue yet.

Not to confuse you, but what "rings" are you speaking of? Did they go on the intake and exhaust manifold before?

There was no gasket material at the exhaust or intake flanges, but the intake had rings that were into the port a little ways on the head side and flanged out on the intake side for a sealing surface. They all fell out when I pulled the intake. I guess I can leave them on the ground?

Oh I like the screen name!

Hmmm. There is more experience here on this forum that can give you more advice. I would throw them away but I am probably wrong. I don't remember seeing any on mine.

Thank you sir. I am definitely from a Ford family.
