No not ok that isn't going to work or be safe.
First the carbs need to be disassembled and cleaned.
And you are right you'll have to get your fuel source cleaned up.
I am seeing carbs with incorrect bowl gaskets lately, actually check your old carb to make sure you have a hole in it for the accelerator pump jet orifice. I should post a pic of a carb that came in with incorrect gasket with no hole, blocks off the acc pump outlet!

Call me tomorrow.
