it is very common for these manifolds to be warped, enuff that some auto parts stores sell a "spreader kit" that spreads the ends away from the middle so you can start the bolts, these look like the old coil spring boosters that were marketed for years. also if the manifolds are that far out they usually aren't flat either, you will have to have them milled flat or you will have constant problems with leaks, i get a lot of these from motor homes and heavy trucks.
