Thanks in advance for your help.
So the tube should slide a little and spin?
You "could" leave carburetor mounted to change the o-rings but you will spill fuel all over the engine, automotive kits will not have the same gaskets as a marine kit, but you might be able to get by with an automotive kit and scavenge the gaskets you need. I tried using a automotive kit last year and got lucky with the part I needed. I would remove the rear bowl and work that way so you don't have to worry about the fuel line, apply a little vaseline to the new o-rings will make assembly easier...
