There's not really a gasket, it's a cone fit. But the OE manifolds do crack readily so you probably just have a crack.

I don't remember having any particular difficulty with the bolts, the only real problem I had replacing the manifolds was I used Pacesetter shorty headers and getting the oil dipstick tube back in place took me to the edge of my sanity.

That has been a trouble free fix for over six years now, still no more problems.
