In the FSM it recommends to get a slightly better alignment you can rotate the cylinders - this, of course, assumes that you have left at least one side of the base gaskets with no sealant, and have not yet final tightened the base nuts.

Some of us have done the same technique with the cylinder heads, although this one is not in the FSM.

These each allow a small amount of adjustment, considering the amount of oversize in the bolt holes.
