I forgot myself... easy way is to stick something narrow in the bolt holes, you should be able to see how deep all 12 are.

if they're all the same depth, then stacker them.

screw them in till they stop.... then check how thick the manifold is, and if the bolt sticks out too much its a short hole.....

Mmm, lubrication is good for inserting things... I'd probably go with sliding a small rod or screwdriver to see what depth they all are before screwing in. Save a fair lot of effort too.
