never tried it, but measure the spaces between the bolt holes and see if you can tell for sure just how much off it might be. IF intake and exhaust ports line up, grind/drill the holes a tad to fit and use it.

Years back I purchased a NOS engine short block. Had to clean up the manifold as Sonny indicated to get it mounted.

The intake and exhaust ports in the manifold and engine were not machined - rough and there was a slight misalignment of the manifold ports to engine ports.
I have an excuse. CRS.

All versions of the C-60 engine use the same manifold gaskets. So all the manifold studs must be in the same place, relative to each other. If a manifold (particularly a used one) has interference fitting on the studs, the problem is probably because the manifold has some warpage or rust, likely some of both.

And, if it is a new one (hence a reproduction), it was most likely manufactured improperly.
