DOC!

Can't help you out, but glad to see you dipping your toes back in the water. I just got back in after a 10-year hiatus with a J-20.

Good luck with the GW.

That clearance is to accommodate the expansion/contraction of the cast-iron manifold. You need a strong washer under the head of the bolt to put appropriate clamping-force on the manifold.

But if you can spare the extra $240, or find a used one, that would be a better option.
