Yep, You need to take it all apart. I'd recomend a soak for 24 hr. in carb solution . You can buy gallon can of the soaking solution from most any big name auto parts stores for about $20. Has a lift pan inside to hold all the loose parts. Got a compressor? You 'll need compressor air to blow out the passageways, and I would also recommend the use of a soft wire, like what they use for bread wrappers minus the plastic strip on it. Use it to probe ALL passageways, then put it back together. When re-attaching the carb onto the intake manifold tube, use vasoline on the old gasket surface to make sure it is sealed good when you tighten the bolts. You'll need to use a pair of vise grips, unless you have the reverse Torx socket to remove / tighten those bolts.
