One interesting thing about this is that the three "galleries" are not all 
the same size ... two are roughly the same and one is a bit smaller.  
Surprisingly, the smaller one handles two cylinders and one of the larger 
ones handles only one, which is the opposite of what intuition (well, *my* 
intuition anyway!) would suggest.

However, a few hours spent grinding -- remember, these manifolds are made of 
iron not aluminum! -- will help equalize things...
