Simply because the o-ring set up does work ok if a bit fiddly to install. We've all been using them for many years with minor issues. The band style is obviously a better design.
If it was mine I would just buy the correct o-ring manifold and some new o-rings. Your then at a known good starting point.
I agree. I was speaking with a buddy of mine and he says most likely its the wrong manifold on the bike. It may be a shovel or some other, but to get the correct manifold and go from there. May have to align the heads, cylinders, and manifold all in one step.

Thanks for the feedback.
