Larry, I would rather struggle with a gasket flopping around than try to pull a manifold away from a head when it won't clear the studs. Usually if the studs are in for a while, the nuts will get rusty and come out with the stud anyway. So what the heck, I replace the factory material with better stock and in a way that for me (and sometimes maybe only for me) works better if I have to go back and do something else in the same area. BTW, they look prettier also..

No matter what you fix, there will always be something else to fix..
"Warranty" is just another way of postponing the inevitable.
